Shadow People

When they watched the shadows, I was there.
I too saw them lumbering to and fro along the dark marsh.
I too heard the dark wails amidst the trees.
I too ran; I ran from these…
These shadow people.
The flames, I too saw the flames,
The heat, I too felt the heat,
The pain…what to say of the pain?

..I see the people watching me as I lumber to and fro, who are we shadow people just ask …and you, will know.

i loved this poem...i loved the shadow people....but i can't tell who it is your talking about. is it the shadow of a person and how they feel exactly what the people who has this shadow feels?

I like this. But as i was reading this...listening to myself refrain "I too" sounded weird. Try to avoid doing that. Some lines are actually good at refraining, but I just thought those words should be avoided. Other than that, i really like this piece. Keep writing. If you have time, please check out my work.Ratings and comments are GREATLY appreciated
