The Shadow: A Poem by Ria Flores

Under the pale moonlight and unseen stars
A shadow sits quietly, looking up so far
Embracing the cool wind, hiding from the dark quiet night
While tears are falling, no one can find.

This shadows heart was broken and in pain
So much pressure and struggles but no one cares
Dreams are scattered, hopes are lost
Seems like drowning in deep and no one holds.

Just like the shadow, plain and dark
You can’t see anything, you can’t find the inner part
The pain inside my mind and my heart
Is a shadow that hides, a trace that falls apart.

No one knows my pain, my tears can’t explain
No one knows my heart was wounded and what’s running through my brain
This shadow stays in the dark, crying in vain
But no one sees the tears though it pours like rain.
