I’m sure you’ve never heard of a shadow
though they love to appear
in deep thought!
They peep out when they ought not to
curiously caress people
make worlds seem darker
and rush over words without reading a bit!
Now what I don’t like a bit
about shadows is that they’re never
Or that they’re still
going yada yada yada over nothing
or getting intimidated by nothings!
They’re never sane.
They’re never still.
