Where Shadows Roam

Where Shadows Roam The space next to the window dancing darkness on display shards of life from far away In the corner sharing shadows safe haven or safely hidden from the progress of the sun thoughts creep in unbidden Life is slipping slowly all connections are eroding time is coming near end anxiety and fear Words worm their way in deep oublietting me from sleep

This is my 3rd reading and I am still trying to figure out my reaction. The word oblietting gives me the shivers. It is so severe and makes me think of being tossed away to be forgotten.

Patricia, I think that you have hit on the reference: obliette. It is a dark place. Thank you :)
