SHADOWS 
 
 
 
Star struckā€¦ 
Alone on the road, 
The road of life. 
Midnight madness, 
Silent sounds, 
And the shadows smile. 
They follow you, 
Never speaking, fading, 
Disappearing, reappearing. 
You seldom notice, 
The shadows. 
They are your emptiness, 
Your void, your darkness. 
The quiet nothingness 
That cannot exist without you. 
Can you exist without them, 
The dark side of life? 
Without the shadows, 
There is no light.
