To explore the darker feelings that one has when depressed, alone, and otherwise feeling darkness

From the Shadows I Watch

From the shadows I watch.
In the shadows I live.

I see people moving, loving.
I see their intentions of greed, self serving need.

From the shadows I watch.
In the shadows I live.

I see the lies spoken.
The promises broken.

From the shadows I watch.
In the shadows I live.

Some have entreated me to some into the light.
To share some warmth, joy, and delight.

From the shadows I watch.
In the shadows I live.

I point out the hypocrisy, the lies, and greed.
In feigned shock to me they say that is not at all the way.

From the shadows I watch.
In the shadows I live.
The shadows have never lied to me.
The shadows share all that there is to see.
