My shadows

I can sense your presence,
but in the distance a shadow appears.
I reach out to touch you and realize it is
not you that is there.
I allow my thoughts to be carried away 
deep in the shadows of my mind.
Sometimes life has a way of painfully taking us to
unexpected places.  It forces us to reach deep inside
and discover or recover who we once were or who
we are true to be.  We bring our experiences with us
as a guide to face us through the fortunes and misfortunes
that lie ahead.
The shadows of my mind have become my home.  They clothe me in comfort,
they allow me my room to roam.  My shadows keep me hidden from any pain
that may cause me harm, until I may sleep without my shadow and trust
anothers arms.
