Shadows of Sadness

Sometimes I feel the sadness as it creeps

It finds a whole in my shell, and slithers through

It sees an imperfection, and into it the darkness seeps

You see for me the sadness follows, it never leaves me alone

For me the sadness shows itself when I hide my face in the dark

For me the shadows enter through the door when I find my way home

Showing me I cannot run from what lingers in my soul

Reminding me that pain will slither in again soon

Reminding me that I cannot run from something that is part of what makes me whole
