Shadows

Shadows short poem

Photo by crash the rocks

Standing in your shadow
This is all that I know
A picture perfect family
Don’t let anybody see

Late at night its rising
Dark yet oh so blinding
Numb to the pain now
The voices in my brain scowl

Draw a pretty picture
Only using red
Sometimes it feels like
I’d be better off dead

Silently suffocating
Drowning in my thoughts
This isn’t what I had sought
I’m sorry

My mind slips away
When I pick up the blade
Releasing all my self hate
I’m sorry

This wasn’t what I had planned
The shaking of my hands
Everything slowly turns to grey
And I feel myself fade away

I’m sorry

More choices is an illusion that laces the present with hope. Incessant are our needs yet like an endless race. Sullied with unattainable goals- we take a step back for a better perspective. Tracing our steps we devise plans that

The Shadows

The Shadows short poem

They live in plain sight but hidden from view Attached to each person like a permanent tattoo They stretch before you in the morning and shrink at midday Its already to late when you realize you’re prey Waiting in silence
