My Faithful Shadow

I say out loud, what others only think. I take great pleasure in expressing hardcore truth about awkward situations at Misscue's Hubpages.

My Own Personal Companion

From Somewhere Within My Head,...

...I hear a tender voice say,...

"Good Evening, Damsel !

No more distress...

I am here !

Take my hand...

Here, with you, is where I stand ! "


...A few times in my life,...

There have been moments of absolute clarity.

...When for a few brief seconds,

The silence,...

...It drowns out the noise...


...And I can FEEL,...

Rather than think...

But for some random reason,...

...I can never make these moments last....

I Sit and Hold My Body Very Still...

...I reflect on those instances, when I felt true happiness...

Memories from my past, that filled me with wonder...

I clutch longingly onto these moments,

...As long as my mind will allow...


...Although, it doesn't take too long before my thoughts get interrupted...

Like a shadow in the dark, they fade away...

Although these fond recollections of times gone by,...

They stay rooted in the depths of my mind,...

...To reappear, when called upon, at a later date...

Hold Very Still...and Listen...

Just Me....

Just Me....

There Have Been Forks in My Road,...

...Paths that I chose so very long ago...

Conscious decisions I made, that created my very destiny...

These recollections dissipate,...

... Like the early morning fog...

Moments like these remain dormant in the depths of my mind,...

...Until the urgency overcomes me to recall them, now & again...


...I've made my choices, as a result of these instances...

I've lived my life for these times...

They pull me back to the present,...

...And into the Now...


...I realize that everything is precisely,...

...The way it was meant to be...

Because everything happens for a reason...

Everything happens the way it should...

This Voice, I Hear It So Resonantly In My Head...

...It's determined echo fills my soul....

It encourages me to open my heart,...

It advocates that I always listen intently,...

...Beyond life's cluttering sounds..​.


...To seek guidance within myself...

To hear what is meant to be heard...

It instructs me to learn the art of quiet patience,...

In order to not only to hear the words being said,...

...But, to also intelligently comprehend the message being told...


...Because this message,...

It​ can be profound !...

Though, at times like this, it seems,...

...The silence becomes louder than the noise...

It speaks volumes !...

And so now, ...

...Once again, I turn the page...

It's my time to venture into the next chapter of my life...

It practically writes itself,...

...Because I hold the pen that reveals my tale...


...My heart., swiftly it beats.

My hands, I clench them tenderly...

Methodically, I proceed,...

...Determined to persevere...


My future is yet to be told,...

Like a fortune telling machine in a traveling show...

I drop into the coin slot, my twenty-five cents...


...And only then, can I see clearly...

My story, it begins to unravel,...

...Revealing wonderous adventures ahead...

My Shadow

Me and My Companion

Me and My Companion

Chapter by Chapter, ...

... This book of my life, I compose, ...

Monopolizing the pages. ...

One episode after another, ...

.... My adventures unfold. ...


... This is my own personal manuscript. ...

From margin to margin, ...

Steadily, with precision. ...

It appears to possess a life force, ...

... All on it's own. ...


... It flows, like a raging river. ...

Runs wild, after a strong, heavy storm. ...

One passage after another, ...

... It seems to practically write itself. ...


... I listen intently, ...

Undeniably amused. ...

I pay special attention to all the little clues, ...

A clever trail of crumbs, that I've left behind for myself. ...

Essential details, that could have easily been missed, ...

... Had it been a story of somebody else's life ! ...

My Friend...My Shadow

My friend...my shadow

My friend...my shadow

Bewildered ! ...

I Grasp the Realization....

"Why didn't I see You before?"...

"Clarity obscured?"...

... Hindsight. Amusement overcomes me! ...


My heart skips a beat...

Your heart picks it right up...

A new spring jumps into my step...


An unfamiliar courage...

An epiphany, it dawns on me...

And finally I understand...


I was never really alone...

You have always been with me...

My fear subsides like a faded old memory...

A page written long ago...

Before my time...


With you at my side...

And you've always been at my side...

MY FAITHFUL SHADOW...

Me & My Shadow

Me & My Shadow
