If all communication
starts with intent,
what was your intent behind the revelation
that could in no way possible
bring any positive result about,
and how did the subsequent events
live up to the expectations
you had built in your head?
Did it play out your way,
did it bring you the just reward you craved,
did you achieve your goal,
did it alleviate your pain?


  1. Beautiful and thought-provoking, as always, Shadow.

  2. Nope, it only was a balm to my pain but then as misery loves company...Anyway not being a sadist I prefer the silence of my broken being than the fight of dragging others down with me. Try to do nothing intending any particular outcome. It is harder than it sounds even.

  3. Someone I knew a long time ago told me , "I never intended to hurt you"
    I did not believe those words.

    I always enjoy your poetry ...

  5. Sometimes there are so many questions and no good answer. Some lines cannot be crossed back from no matter what words are spoken. Especially when it is over the edge. Thought provoking poem Shadow.
