For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


A dark hand brushed against my shoulder
It hurts and behold Its just a silhouette
Trailing behind me
I dread this familiar shadow

My eyes bled 'cause I come from a past that hurts
And the scar wouldn't heal with time
But this shadow casting a tall silhouette
Is just no good for such a moment

I came from where that hurts
My past is but a broken arm
I can't lift my present with hurtful shoulder
Someone please call off this shadow

A silhouette is the last thing I needed
Standing next to my shadow
I have been too sad to cry over again
Kindly go away from behind; please
