Halloween Poem: I Am The Shadow

Updated on October 31, 2016

I Am the Shadow

I am the shadow out of the corner of your eye.
I am the light that is always there but almost never seen.
Only a few make contact with me.

You cannot banish my presence.
You cannot touch my essence.
I am one of many.

We are always questioned.
We are always denied.
You fear my kind.
For we are unknown.

Evidence of our presence is many.
But many not indisputable.
Some don't believe our existence.
But they will believe.
I will make them believe.

You cannot touch me.
But I can touch you.
I will push you.
I will scratch you.

You won't know what hit you.
You won't see it coming.
It brings me joy and satisfaction.
And I will be relieved of the boredom.

The Boredom of the Eternal.

      Very nice Halloween poem, Victor. Now you need one for Diwali, right? More Light there and you have this in abundance. Good to see you branching out. A charming poem! To me. Much Love.
