shadows

ς

there is a sadness

which flows freely through my veins

with every beat of my heart.

it’s a darkness i cannot seem to let go –

even when it is tearing me apart.

ς

it is easy for some to say throw it away,

shut out the dark,

only let in the light

but

how can they know what i see inside,

how i feel

and

the demons i fight?

ς

i do have days when i walk in the light –

i see ‘hope’ as bright as the sun

however

behind every ray is a shadow of darkness

waiting patiently to trip me up.

ς

i have come to discover

this sadness i feel

is a part of me i cannot deny –

like an object which stands in rays of the sun,

a patient shadow

awaits

from

behind.

    I like what you said about it being a part of you. I’m also glad to hear that you have days where you see the light.

    Very well written and sadly I can feel your pain. I used to live there too. Gradually there will be more days living in the light 🙂

      Thank you for your sweet words. I do hope – I have trouble at this time of year. It seems each winter the shadows get longer and wider.
