My shadow

Its a tangible touchable thing

That sits inside me.

Like a bag of cement

Just add water

And it will turn solid

Take me down to the bottom


Hiding in other worlds

Doesn't make t better

Doesn't make it go away

But it gives rest to a restless mind

Its an escape from the inescapable

I don't get lost there

I just hide out for a while.


Sunshine still warms me.

Green things still evoke peace.

It makes the world go still for a moment.

Makes me focus outside of the mess.

Leave the inside to itself for a while

It will still be there when the sun goes in.
