Shadow Life

Seclusion is my best friend,
Hiding is my best game,
Removed is my lifestyle,
Alone is what I am.
Shadow in dark corner,
Nothing in the vast black space,
Gone in life.
Missing life as it flies by me,
Years gone as I slipped through the unseen cracks,
Distant existence.
Uneventful life,
Self isolation,
Alone is my drug of choice.
Solitary confinement is how I spend down time,
Companionless is my best relationship,
Shadow of a life.

"Shadow Life" is my first poem, it came from the dark corner of my head. In a way I am how I described, I'm very solitary. It stared from me not being able to sleep and wanting to be creative. I switched from drawing to writing. Plus I figured I like Edgar Allan Poe, so why not make something dark and realistic to my life like he did?
