Among the Shadows – a poem about……….

My heart and mind were torn in two
leaving splinters of me in the dirt
fighting desperately for breath
slowly suffocating in a world of ignorance.

I tried to hide among the shadows
because nobody would listen to my story
they simply watched as I imploded
none of them appeared to care.

No one noticed when I forced a smile
since I was clearly healthy
when I tried to explain how I felt
they mocked me for being weak.

I’m not afraid any more though
for love has caressed my fragile mind
helping me to follow the path I need
through the darkness and into the light.
