    Vulnerable Shadows

    Shadow

    There are those in the world who feel more keenly, see more clearly, and understand more deeply, and we are often misunderstood by others.  People see a part of us, and think they know us, just like people see the surface of a lake and say they have seen the lake.  They...

    A Shadow With A Wish.

    I am a shadow, a nothing. I am only a shadow of my former self. Nothing but a shell. I am a shadow with only one wish. And that wish is to be alone. For I am not lonely while alone. For I find happiness in solitude. I need not empathy or sympathy nor the 'help' from the pity...

    Away It Sails...

    skipping through thin air like a rose pedal torn by Its own thorn. They told It Its death would not be fair but It did not care. It gave a smirk, a quick wave and off into the circus never understanding the sound of "behave." For It was born blind with wide open eyes. For It was...

    The Shadow

    I am just a shadow in your life and you pay little attention to me.  You can’t see me moving through life with you.  You move freely on without me and I am stuck here, waiting and wondering when you will finally notice that I exist.  I am just...

    Guess What? I see you. You may not believe me, but I do see you. You are not a shadow, or a ghost to me. I see the wonderful person that you are. You do mean it all to me. I know that you have a lot to offer. You do not have to be alone. There have been a lot of people that have...
