÷ɤ· shadows in my mind ·ɤ÷

.

the shadows hold sway

in dark corners of  my mind

trying to get out

·ɤ·

i feel them struggling

against my frail defenses

trying to get out

·ɤ·

i try to fight back

building strong walls   …but they keep

trying to get out

·ɤ·

what’s hiding behind

the shadows?  i don’t know   …they’re

trying to get out

·ɤ·

i’m afraid to look

beneath the shadows   …they’re still

trying to get out

·ɤ·

it’s a constant fight

between them and me   …always

trying to get out

·ɤ·

and my biggest fear

is what will happen to me

…if  they do get out?

  1. Oh thanks for that. I really can relate to it. I wrote about it being the 13th anniversary fo my husband’s death and yes, the shadows are trying to get out. http://growingyoungereachday.wordpress.com/2011/04/22/no-post-today/

  2. i like what you’ve done with this haiku form dani – and think we all know some of the shadows you are talking about – the good thing always is that there is also lots of light where shadows are…

    • that’s true, Claudia. i hadn’t really thought about that ~ without light there are no shadows. ♥ thank you so much for your visit and kind comment.

  3. Perhaps letting them out will be a relief for you – no further fear of the unknown… really nicely done!! So sorry I’m late…

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
