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,

plunge deeper inside,

or seek another shadow,

pen in hand.

Shadows.... they never leave your side do they.

Not a place I like to dwell in myself.

Great write V

The brighter the light the darker the shadow.

May you always stand in the light V.

Great piece Vautaw. I'm always fascinated but the metaphor of shadows as well as the real ones! Nice accompanying video as well.
