Into the Shadows

 

 


 

 

 


Effortless and free
all the things I'd love to be

I watch the ease at which you speak,
laugh, play, smile, confront
the way your calm demeanor
spills over onto those around you
putting them under your spell

I disappear into the shadows behind you
where I've always been more comfortable
unsure if I put myself here or 
if it's everyone else that does

I feel myself slip away, slowly
somewhat unnoticed by everyone else

I've lost what it feels like to be seen
I feel less — always less

It is so very exhausting
the constant comparison
and feeling like I never quite
measure up
