Two Shadows

Two shadows on the wall
The slightest hint of swaying
If I knew any better
My sanity's decaying

The pendulum moves silently
And casts a double shade
If my thoughts weren't haunted
It would be a sight of grace

Though instead it reminds me
Of my consuming dread
That perhaps he won't return
Perhaps my love is dead

    This is really an amazing piece. I really like it but I am pretty cynical. Well anyways great poem.

    Haunting poem, but I'll say it took talent to write it, the ending is especially excellent, and you held on to the rhythm very nicely.

    Slightly on the dark side where I like to walk. Excellent read, pure poetry stanza after stanza with a most satisfying ending.
