“Shadows”

 

 

He wasn’t really

in control

of his feelings

today

he didn’t understand

why

but he just

couldn’t get

out of the

shadows

of his

thoughts,

which were

full

of gloom

and depression,

they just

followed him

around

just waiting

to smother out

the life

of any

good feelings

or thoughts

that might be

able to

crawl out from

under

the heavy dark

curtain

that was

hanging around

his mind.

He was thrown

a few

kind words

from a casual

friend

with caring

eyes

that really

tried to

bring a smile

to his face

but those words

were quietly

lead away,

taken to a

backroom

in his mind

and beaten,

in till

their was no

good

left in them

anymore

after which

they were just

left

to wander

aimlessly around

in his mind

bumping into

the other

deprogrammed

thoughts

of good

that now had

nowhere left

to go,

just waiting for

the darkness

to fill them up

with pain

and despair

turning them

back into

thoughts

again

only now

dark ones,

then sending them

on their way.

He wasn’t

in control

of his feelings

today,

he just hoped

tomorrow

would be

different…
