Shadows, creepily follows us everywhere. It never changes as the person does. It never leaves us as others do. Sometimes they are like memories always with us. But totally diverse. Memories tears apart till the last fiber of the being weeps with sorrow. But Shadows never shows anything outside. It just reflects what everyone sees.
But they too leave us when darkness engulfs everything. Slowly covering everywhere darkness around and despair inside. The once close shadows dissolves like a stranger into that darkness pushing some more into the void of loneliness.
Life like everything is as cruel as it is true. Layers and layers of shadows of every person peels away to reveal the raw stabbing truth of reality. As times go they add another layer and reach another person. Sheds past like dead skin while making the post ones shed tears instead.
Dissolve like shadows leaving behind pain or be true to your heart like a flicker in darkness even if it hurts, because there should always be hope for something.
Hope. Cry and smile and fall and rise, with hope.
