Shadows

Living in the shadow

of someone else’s life

is a safe hiding place,

most of the time. 

 

You get to observe, 

detached, 

no fear, no pain. 

 

Fertile breeding ground

to create art, music, poetry...

 

Until the shadow turns around,

chases you down, 

strips you naked in front of a

stone-casting society. 

 

Do you stand erect

in the blinding light...

The Void

Hey there lonely girl,

what are you doing wandering around

these dark places?

Don’t you know that 

evil lurks about? 

The void is littered

with those who will use you,

abuse you,

scar your soul for eternity. 

Listen to my pleas,

I’m begging on bended knees,

move forward

towards the light,

no matter how tempting

the mysterious

shadows may be.
