- In The Shadows

I heard them before I saw them

The constant whispers finally had faces to match the voices

They stayed hidden in the shadows for as long as I can remember

The whispers abruptly stop once they notice my staring

It’s as if they want to stay anonymous,

Continue to hide in the dark shadows of the night

Continue to watch me from afar instead of me knowing they’re there

I feel tears fall down my face, there is no stopping them as I continue to look the three figures in

the eyes

The three people who are supposed to be gone from life

The three people who should have no way to return to me
