Forever to remain in the shadows,

Because it feels right,

Because that is where we belong.

It is not a bad thing.

 Some see the shadows as a frightful place. 

People are afraid of the unknown,

and the shadows simply place

things behind a curtain,

hiding them from prying

eyes that wish to know too much. 

Perhaps the shadows are

made up of people?

People who wish to remain detached from

what is considered ‘normal’ or ‘known’,

 and these people form the shadows,

to protect the things that are unknown,

from people who are not ready to see more

than that which is right in front of them.

Kudos on this tale of shadowy persona. I can relate. Having been there as a young man. It took many years of poetry to open the shade and let in the light. This poem makes me wonder if the writer writes from experience or just has a vivid imagination. Either way good job. I enjoyed this poem greatly.
