My Shadow

I wrote this poem on here: http://ettcweb.lr.k12.nj.us/forms/newpoem.htm. It’s actually a really cool and fun poetry template website if you’ve got writer’s block or are just super-busy.

My shadow wears
a too-small black dress 
shoes of smoke 
scarves up her to her black rimmed eyes 
and she knows
the order of things
Her hair is like
a black streak of sunlight 
My shadow is a ghost 
who knows all your fears 
twisting and manipulating them 
until you are trapped

In the prison of her eyes
