Shadow

December 5, 2007
By Seanne Kay, Raleigh, NC

A shadow in the night




Doomed to silence





Going unnoticed






An afterthought in the background












Doomed to silence





It waits
An afterthought in the background
Wanting to be acknowledged














It waits
Bending to your will








Wanting to be acknowledged


Forever ignored












Bending to your will
Changing as time passes
Forever ignored
Tainted as it is

Changing as time passes
Consuming all it touches
Tainted as it is
This force—of nature

Consuming all it touches
A shadow in the night
This force—of nature
Going unnoticed
