- In The Shadows
I heard them before I saw them
The constant whispers finally had faces to match the voices
They stayed hidden in the shadows for as long as I can remember
The whispers abruptly stop once they notice my staring
It’s as if they want to stay anonymous,
Continue to hide in the dark shadows of the night
Continue to watch me from afar instead of me knowing they’re there
I feel tears fall down my face, there is no stopping them as I continue to look the three figures in
The three people who are supposed to be gone from life
The three people who should have no way to return to me
