    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...

    A Ghost

    Everyone who thinking's they know about me thinks they've figured me out, and I so much more and sometimes so much less. They read my papers, measure my height, but  they never know. They listen to my words and analyze speech and they think they know. Words like 2nd...

    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...

    But the Shadow Knows

    Sometimes I am invisible. People around me often don't notice. They only think I'm what they see, and that what they see has no substance. But a shadow needs light, sun light, moon light, lamplight. They think they are my light. That without them I am nothing. But... once when...

    People think they know the face of Mordecai,

    that they can understand the darkness that is the Beserker but then really don't get it. It's not a matter of choice and until you see the undercurrent of intensity behind the carefully maintained, immaculately face carved from stone - you never realize just how powerful I am...

    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?

    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...

    Vulnerable Shadows

    This was one of my finalized pieces in my poetry class. In my mirror I am a reflection, cool to the touch. I am surrounded by anything imaginable, and more. I am incapable of leaving this fragile universe, as incapable as I am of stepping through the breakable glass portal...
