My Shadow

Updated on June 18, 2012


I thought I saw my shadow

there upon the wall

I tried to take it down..

because it was casting such a pall


It looked just like a puddy tat

that I had seen before

if I turned the wrong way

then it loked like there were more


I needed help.. and looked for you

but you were not around

I heard a very distant

and very lonely sound.


It was my mind... calling out

for some one just to care

can anybody help me

is anybody there?


So here I sit so soft and still

keeping my eyes upon the wall

hoping someone would hold me

before i take a bad, bad fall

      Michael, this is so wonderful, full of symbolism and double meaning - a bit different from your more typical poems of romance and passion, but beautifully executed. As a friend, I read and feel a sense of sadness and isolation...if this is 'you' speaking, reach out to your many friends at such times, many of whom are right here on hubpages. Take care, Michael...you are in my thoughts. voting beautiful, awesome,interesting, and UP!

      Aww! this is so sweet and sad Michael. I hate to picture that kitty sitting there so frightened of his shadow. This beautifully written poem has such a symbolism and dual meaning.

      I see the pain behind the simple words and for those of us with shadows it reminds us we are not alone: our subconcious is the shadow. There is no one to save us, but ourselves:)

      You're welcome to visit my hubs. Voted up!
