I’m a shadow in the dark
Standing behind the spotlight
Quietly observing passers by
Jotting notes to tuck away
To revive them at a later time

Everyone hardly notices me
When evading comes natural
I inherited it from the start
Though it seems like a curse
Being an odd entity among peers

I leave traces of my existence
On tattered pages to be found
My life’s story told in metaphors
Deciphered only by an open mind
Letting the world know I was alive
