Living in the Shadows

living in the shadows
Here no one can see my tears,
Here no voices form my name.
Night and day eclipse this place,
Until my eyes just stare into the darkness
Of unrealistic hope;

Here, only you knew of my existence,
But you stayed silent –
Far too long.
Here is where you abandoned me,
To be devoured slowly by the Shadows.
