Favorite Quote:
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of Gods great love, we are not consumed. His compassion never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.


What my shadow sees it will not tell
It watches innocence, watched as she fell
Watched as she spoke
Hid when she drank
Followed her footsteps
Felt her heartache

What my shadow sees it will not tell
It watches me
Watched as I fell
Watched as I spoke
Hid when poison, I drank
Kept its mouth shut
When my life was at stake

What my shadow see it will not tell
It watches the guillotine
Watched as blades fell
My shadow fears death
So secrets it hides
And when the light appears
It will leave my side

This is the first poem of yours with a ryhme scheme (most of the ones I read by you are free verse and feel their way around) but I truly think its great! You very talented and I think you deserve to be published one day, if you ever do I will certainly buy it! The only problem is the ryhme scheme you establish in the first stanza falls through and follows a different pattern with the other two, but other than that its and amazing poem :)
