I lurk in the shadows unnoticed,
the days pass me by with gleeful, careless abandon,
as i sit in the shadows, hidden.
there were nights bejeweled with stars so bright
i blink from the glare that hurt my eyes.
there were afternoons so still and airless
as i lay forgotten, suffocating in the dust.
there were days so dark with storm clouds
i strain to see the road before me.
i stay in the shadows uncertain,
the moonlight bathes my dreams
in a silver blanket that engulfs me
