In 2016 words began tumbling onto the page, forming songs of heartspeak. Giving birth to a love of writing poetry and ecclectic articles.


The Little Shadow

little shadow

I fall into YOU

all the time you know

You hide me

in a thick shame show

I don’t know why

shame needs to be my woe

shadows sizzle a silence

thundering noiselessness

when really it is the heart being a siren

in the dark shadows

pouring tears of guilt and shame shyness

the invisible I

shakily peeps out

of the blackened sky

blinding one by the golden light

bright, intense and so full of try

why can’t I walk in your light?

why the incessant need

to hide me or fight?

now, I hide me too

I guess the light grow’s one’s might

they see You

but still with footprints of invisible white

children and babies delight

whether born within or adopted outright

just like auric arc light

if You want

create from your

body mind or hands

and flaunt

your paintings poetry clothes

or small business and don’t lament

can I practice daily

positive thinking again?

maybe palely

if you don’t drown me

in your sorrow about frailty

as I will not be able to breathe

only to suffocate mainly

let me be able to seek safely

suntans theatres jewels

Ego creativity fire bravely

gold sunflowers and comfortable chairs


The Shadow is something I

      Hi Vellur I appreciate you spending time to read my poem the little shadow. If it could travel you through time or through the riverbank of feelings then little shadow was able to walk in the light for a while.

      Charmaine, this is an amazing collection of words and visuals. I need to read this poem three or four times to grasp its true meaning. Your poetry always compels me to think more deeply.
