Phantom of Nevers
I walk behind walls of secrets
Glancing at Reality through panes of Silence.
Knowing what is versus what should be
Offering glimpses of things not to come.
I am a phantom of nevers,
A prophet of the non-existing possibilities.

I hope to administer smiles
To lives riddled with bullets of Normalcy.
Seeing deeper than I should
Into the eyes of dismal realities.
Realities of the haunting Shades of Gray
That prevent Peace and chase Hope away.

The lines between truth and lie
Whip about me like an angry cape
Bellowing, flowing, hugging and protecting
Those I love and those loved less.
I am the phantom of nevers
Nothing more - nothing less evermore.
