Shadows

Shadows

Daily Prompt: Ebb and Flow, a post on your blog like it would appear three years from now

 

Shadows of my face

Crowd my facebook page.

Instagram photos with

Multiple hashtags ##

Receive a thousand likes.

 

My body spends days

Laughing and dancing

Avoiding time alone

Afraid of the dark

I used to love.

 

My mind rushes

Hurrying to success

With no time to breathe

I forget to watch the star

Which appears first in the sky.

 

But my blog remains naked

The last date I posted

Has remained the same

For too long for me to care.

 

Poetry stopped overpowering

Ever since I chose not to think

And crawl with the crowd.

I killed myself with the pen

With which I refused to write

And all that remained was

My shadow, refusing proudly

To accompany me to my grave,

Choosing to shine under lights

That made it go blind.
