(Sadistic-Nightmares here, I'm new to the whole fictionpress thing, so be understanding with me. This is just a little poem I wrote and many people liked. I hope you enjoy it!!! )

Hide Amongst the Shadows

I've strayed from the light,

I take refuge in the shadows

My thoughts are safe at night

Where no one dares to go.

My essence is heavily concealed

Like a shadow obscures trust

I want to pretend my life isn't real

To me, expression is a knife thrust.

The light is pain, the shadows console

Will it be possible for me to heal?

Will someone see to the depths of my soul?

Darkness shall help me deal.

I guess I'll just be all alone,

I'm beginning to fade into the unknown....
