Screaming Shadows

My shadow’s
screams
reverberate
in the walls,
but I’m the
one that
hears them.

  1. For me that translates as something I once called my silent scream. When I read the line “I’m the one that hears them” my mind changes it to “I’m the [only] one [who] hears them.” That’s when the full impact of the “aloneness” strikes me.
