BlogFEST 2012 - Shadowland

 I stand behind him,
but he doesn't see me.
He might hear something,
but he thinks it's the wind.

 I live in the Shadowland,
silently waiting to escape.
Watching him from inside
hoping to be with him outside.

He's knows I am here somewhere
and has searched for me for years.
He just needs to find the key
to unlock the Shadowland.

I need to reach him desperately,
 must send him more clues.
But only thru his dreams
because that is when he is closest.

For now I live unseen,
my voice remains unheard.
Locked oh so far away 
deep within the Shadowland.

But not for long...

Wishing you moments to escape from the shadows,

    1. Yes, Daphne! I went for the macabre. Not usually my normal I had to try. The picture is pretty cool...I just happened to stumble upon that on the site I use to get some of my pictures ( my other writing. Believe it or not, but I was inspired by a Disney Channel movie for this one!
