    Walking With Shadows:poem

    I am walking with shadows they are now my friends, they engulf me in the darkness i long for, the darkness that keeps the ice around my heart. I have a shield so cold it blocks out the pain of lies, love and broken promises.

    Another One

    I think it's time I talked about this so please bear with me. My social anxieties started to come to a head from the age of 7 or 8 when I become more aware of the gap between how I saw me and how others did. It was bad enough being picked on for my difficulties with walking...

    I prefer living in the shadows,

    I only let people see me when I want them too; hell, you might've walked by me in the past and never even known I was there. As long as I'm in the shadows, no one will find me and as long as I'm alone, I'll be watching this world pass me by.

    Eternal Home

    I'm so used to being an outsider that I claim the shadows to be my home for this lifetime. I am not fully welcomed anywhere else so I will keep the peace and keep to myself. I am a human shadow who doesn't have real place on earth. So may I be seen but ignored yet again...
