Prompted from the word of the day challenge:
sciamachy (n) act or instance of fighting a shadow or
I ache for you,
the way you choose to close your doors.
You think you are broken-
way too soon for your young years,
that you are an abandoned soul-
you may be misplaced, but only for now,
for you are young,
you are not unloved.
Stop blinding yourself,
open your eyes to what lies before you,
the endless dreams and possibilities-
let go of your sciamachy,
for these ghosts are only in your head.
