Just A Shadow

I'm just a shadow, standing in the back,
Filled with gaping holes and millions of cracks.
I'm trapped and I can't seem to get out,
no matter how much I try to scream and shout.
There I am, just standing in the dark,
with no light, not even a spark.
I'm so lost, and I can't find my way,
and slowly and silently I begin to fade away.
The emptiness eats away at me,
and I'm afraid it will never let me be.
Misery is my companion, I guess, my only friend,
the loneliness will be there for me until the very end.
I am surrounded by all of these walls,
if only I can push them and make them fall.
Ah! But alas!
I'm nothing but a shadow, standing in the back.
