Just a Shadow

My shadow is not
caring, comforting, and kind
But it’s….
It's just cruel, awful, and mean
Most people think
My shadow completes me, but
My shadow makes it so I can never be alone
It comforts me
With fright
But when I’m
scared
I know it’s
my shadow
But it’s just…
It grows bigger and bigger
Until I’m longer there
(now read from bottom to top including the title)

The different backwards/forwards meaning were so cool! Nice job.

Amazing job. You have REAL talent. I just started writing poems, but I know which ones are the best! :) Again, AMAZING job. If possible, I need a good writer, as yourself, to PLEASE comment on my newly written poems judgmentally.

OH MY GOODNESS!! I love these kind of poems how they go one way and then they have a whole different meaning when you read them backwards! I've always wanted to do one but they seem kinda difficult. Good Job that's really cool!

I really like that backwards writing. I might use it some time. Is that OK?
