Alone again as evening falls,
I join gaunt shadows and we crawl
up and down my room's dark walls.

Up and down and up and down,
against starlight—strange, mirthless clowns—
we merge, emerge, submerge...then drown.

gaunt shadows.... Up and down and up and down, we merge, emerge, submerge.............. then drown. Beautiful poem on shadows which sometimes emerge as real men or material. Thanks for sharing. I appreciate this amazing poem more so because it was written by the poet at a very young age. Congrats.

We drown in shadows starker still, shadows of the looming hills, shadows of sad selves we spill, fascinating lines. loved the musical quality of your poem. Thank you for sharing.

A great lyrical poem should be set to music. To be written so early show your promise. To my favorites.

I have a song that would be perfect for Vince Gill, I think. But I'm too shy to propose it!
