Silhouette - Poem by Matthias Pantaleon

A dark hand brushed against my shoulder
It hurts, looking back, it's just a silhouette
Trailing behind me all along
I dread this familiar shadow

I came from a past that hurts
My past is but a broken arm
I can't lift the present with hurtful shoulders
Someone please call off this shadow

A silhouette is the last thing I want
Behind my back
I have been too sad to cry over again
Stay far from me, I ask you nicely
