Shadow - Poem by Marie Joyce B. Negapatan

No power to speak,
No power to make this voice squeak,
So I cry, I whimper
In this quiet place,
Of sadness, can’t whisper
I long for shadow,
As mine just vanished
Outside the window
Are you the cause of
This fading light?
Will you be that guide?
My shadow to end
This terrible fright?

    The shadow some say can be the inner soul. Enjoyed the read.
