looking for meaning in shadowplay

i dont say
not really
but i do it
in a way
that gives
false depth
use of shadow
meanings left
to the reader
upon closer
a mirage
always just over
the next hill
but truly
a blank expanse
asphalt illusions
of brittle hope

i know my
one track mind
on the verge
of another
heart on collision
an accidental
on her occidental
using the light
to hide my flaws
hoping she
will overlook
my lack of looks
to see the lone
plum shaped bruise
of cardiac distress
feebly calling
her name in the dark
