Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

Casted Shadows


A casted shadow
falls upon your shoulders
a part of life
that can't be divided

It's like
a crucifixion of Christ
nailed through the hands

It will stay for eternity
unless you stand up and fight
don't let the shadows
run your life

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is about people who talk about and pull other people down,
they have no life of their own so they try to ruin other peoples,
we all know someone like this. They have been casting their shadows
since time began.

    There are many of them, and seem to experience a perverse kind of pleasure out of bringing other people down. They are suffering from an inferiority complex. Well written. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
