Just Barely

A silhouette in the misty shadows
calls to someone I used to be
who I am now intervened
self stepped on selfless’s neck
the heartless bastard
but going back or undoing
invalidates too much
and dodging one slippery slope
is not victory, just barely
a respite.
And shadows we used to hide in
potentially hold menace
so what has been lost or gained
