My Shadow

My Shadow

A Poem by SilentDreamer


I never liked him like that -seriously-

I still don't.

But when I saw that?

 My heart started racing and I thought,

"What the hell?"

It was like he was mine.

Dorky, wierd,

who would never ever

Get a girlfriend.


I KNEW he liked me.

Followed me around like a puppy,

Like he was my shadow.

Remembered every word I said.

Texted me constantly,

Including during confirmation 

while the pastor watched!

I never liked him-

Still don't.

So why do I care at all?

I felt the conflicting emotions. Nice poem

I kind of get it. I like it. A lot.

Great write. I love how the emotions here are struggling within to find what it wants.
Hmmm it's both hopeful and being like a hopeless romantic in my view.
Very interesting take. I like it. =)
Wonderful !!!

We never know what makes something get and sometimes keep our attentions. like the song we hate but can't stop humming to ourselves, or the person of strange appearance we just can't stop staring at. I think we all know someone that fits into this category. :)

Nice write - feelings are really confusing at times.
In parts, it reads like it might be a love story, then again, maybe it may just be pity for that helpless dork.
Great stream-of-consciousness, good job!

Well, your feeling is the feeling of regret that someone who has been following you around and really admiring you is gone. The person has redirected everything he feels for you to another person, and inside that just hurts you.

I thought that it was interesting, but confusing at the same time :/ but it was still good to read

Posted 7 Years Ago

Sounds somehow nice, familiar with confusion and flowing like little river without direction...Sometimes simple emotions make us confused in what we seek...Nice :)
