Climb the highest mountain, punch the face of god

Shadow Man

I remember the look
On his face as he
Snapped his picture,
Not bothering to crack
A smile.
His soul escaping through
The tears welling up
In his eyes.
I tell him it'll be fine,
He calls me a liar.
I walk away,
Knowing I can never walk back.
