I Am a Shadow


I am a shadow
I lurk through the darkness of others
They never see me
For i am the only one who knows
I feed off suffering and dark pain
I see all they are
And all they have become over the years of their life
Some see me
And some don't
The ones who do see me are my allies
The ones who don't, show me no interest
I hunt
I feed
And i live
I live through the darkness
It coils around my soul
Bending all light away
Smothering me in dark and painful thoughts
Sometimes i wish for it to cease
Sometimes i don't
It's like murder
The guilt haunts you
But alas there is no guilt
Just pain
Always pain
Never light
I am a shadow
