The shadow

Where do the shadows fall
when you walk alone at night
and there is no moon
to show you the way
You don't have to hide
the clear water of agony
running down your cheeks
won't reflect anything
The taut muscles of your body
held tightly against the storms raging within
can snap in silence
The creases of anguish
lining your mouth
struggling to muster a smile
can grow deeper
no one can question the pall of gloom
 hanging around you
The sighs can grow louder now
and become ghosts howling in their misery
The stillness can blend with anything
 become a mystery never acknowledged
and there are no shadows
because you become one......
