The Whispering Dark Shadows

Dark shadows once quiet
come with me

Tempting me
with safe corners
in darkened rooms

Shadows playing on the wind
then falling
deep into silence
tempting me to follow

I learned long ago
to listen to the shadows
to feel the yin
to acknowledge the damp, deep cold

I’ll settle in
with the softest of down
and multi-layers of love
until the whispering dark shadows
are quiet once again

Thank you for reading my books: If I Could Tell You How It Feels, and Untangled, A Story of Resilience, Courage, and Triumph

  1. The shadows like to play
    with our mind and feelings
    it isn’t easy to overcome
    to lift the load one’s bearing.

    Can seem dark & strong
    we don’t know how to win
    inside our mind and souls
    shadows want to break-in.

    There’s a way to fight & cope
    for shadows to become thin
    if you know how to turn on
    the light that you have been.

  2. this is so very beautiful Alexis. I remember a time when shadows scared me to the point i didn’t want to be outside at night………it was the fear of what could be……….it took a long time to work through that and your words describe some of my feelings perfectly.
