Living in the Shadows

Creeping through

The night's unaware

Running from the light

Lurking in the dark corners

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So silently I walk around

Staying in your shadow

Never breaking free

Never wanting to leave

My darkened home

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Look at me

My tears are true

My heart is in dismay

I feel so alone

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What am I saying?

I am alone

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Strolling along this street of hope

Beside the crystal ocean

I only hear children sing

Sing a song of joy for me

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The street of hope has gone away

Eroded from memory

Entangled in tragedy

Because of my foolish mistake

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The crystal sea is filled with tears

More than what it needs to live

It's dying ever so slowly and painfully

As I am at this very moment

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wish I could hold you

But I cannot

I am doomed in this timeless zone

Forever alone

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stepping out of your shadow

I flow out and hide back in

But only when it's dark

For I live in the shadows

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Author's Note:

My second poem about my love, Harry. This particular poem is a lot tamer than the first one entitled "Darkened light." The next one I'm going to post is "A desire for revenge." I think i'm going to be able to finish it by the end of the week so please be patient. Reviews please …I'm getting annoying from all that review asking, aren't I?
