Casting Shadows

It is in the murkiness of the unconscious
one holds onto pain,
habitually licking wounds of time gone past
causing them to fester and not heal.
Yet,
when light cascades
upon the abscessed heart
one recoils in disgust and anger.
Unwilling
to rise to the challenge
of remaining in the light,
but choosing instead
to cast their shadows
upon those who come too near.
