In The Shadows. (An Original Poetry)

One whole,
body spirit and soul,
plundered in piece,
splintered into shards
shattered by ordinary words
like a feather,
severed by the wind.
I have capitulated,
like bay leaves
shrinked by Harmattan

My world is mere bluffings
a scheme to delight in.
a well crafted chicanery.
because of them,
I have recoiled in my jittery,
freezing steps,
afraid to speak,
my sentences breaking,
frightened by their eyes
as it stripes me
of every single bravery.

The streets I stroll,
a darkness I know,
their reproval,
drowns me in affliction,
as they bicker,
their noise
is deafening as silence.
that thuds within
as I sit in awe,
like a lost chick
wandering in the storm

This little lie,
protects me,
from their shaming,
it feels good to die,
in this dye of comfort,
I fear the sun,
because in it,
I'm unclothed
mortified and distressed,

I'm welled up,
with emotions
like a clustered bridge.
stains and tears
in my dreamy eyes
like a canal
flooded by filth,
I need a dose,
to close my eyes
and dream less of this world
cut up in banality

One whole,
body, spirit and soul,
gashed open,
blood and water.
filtering pure essense
they have taunted me,
their jeers
have haunted me.
their mockery
have broken me,

My favorite part of this great poem. You do it so well, I love poetry and literary tragedy. I can tell it came from your heart, in a moment of venting. Thank you for sharing these words.

Yeah it came from my heart, it was a beautiful moment and quite a nervy one for me. Im a writer that takes advantage of my emotions to create beautiful piecies. Im glad you appreciate this.

This is a very deep and emotional poem, I love the way you write. A hug 🤗

Thanks a million, I appreciate it.
