Shadow Jars

Shadows drift around me slowly
Covering my wounds and scars
As days pass I get more lonely
These shadows seem like prison bars
They all laugh as they pass by me
Trap these shadows in their jars
Leave them there eternally
And don't let them forget these scars
Why must they haunt me slowly?
Taking everything I had
I should have acted how they told me,
but back then I merely laughed
Ignorance had damn near filled me
My best friends were all I had
Suddenly, the lights got dimmer
Darkness was at all my sides
Yet at last I saw a shimmer
Perhaps peace had just arrived
That light constantly flicked,
until it burnt out and died
Is this the way it's supposed to be
Nothing left to see or do
Time flies by so rapidly
Is it too late or far too soon?
