I am but a shadow... A shadow of myself

I am a shadow,
A ghost.
I walk
through
this world
neither fully awake
nor asleep
what reality is this?
is it not one that I have helped to create?

a shadow drifting,
I slip
I step over the threshold of an unknown world
bound by my thoughts,
my contract on entering this world,
my physicality.
(but do i even have claim to that?)
i am no longer sure…
each moment blends
and fades
into the next.
Time…
creation of our childlike minds,
where have you gone?
i feel myself dragged under by your currents,
swept away on a path I had not planned –
or foreseen.
Where are you taking me?
do i even care?
I wonder…
for i flicker.
a shadow of myself
i slip
in and out
of where?
i could not tell you
for even i do not know
I feel
empty.
I just don’t feel like i am real
grant me solidarity!
pin me to this Earth!
Make me real.
i beg you!
Here:
alone,
I drift.
a hold on nothing -
I seem to float;
between worlds…
It feels okay.
because this way I can deal.
But what good is it?
Drawn out over a prolonged period of time?
I wonder…
will I find my way back?
will I return?
Would I want to?
I wonder…
but i slip
deeper into this unknown
realm
i slip
I am lost
or was I never found to start with?
I slip

I am but a shadow... A shadow of myself
