    ~SHADOW WORLD~

    Momma favored her.
    I just wanted love
    and needed love
    but, my share was
    shadowed thin.

    I cried, I tried to
    be sugar and spice
    but always came up
    short because Momma
    favored her and in my
    heart, oh how it hurt.

    So many times I
    swallowed tears
    with silence my only
    friend and in my
    room, with crucifix,
    I cried for it to end.

    So cold and lonely
    in her shadow, no
    sun to dry my tears
    and through the
    years, inside myself,
    another world I lived

    and in that world
    there were no dreams,
    no love, no bright
    sunbeams. Just dark
    and gloom with no
    birds rhyme, like
    winter all the time.

    I've lived so long
    in my shadow world,
    I don't remember
    touch or joy or tender
    things of such and it
    hurts so very much.

    Oh how I cry for
    friendship true of
    other than my
    shadow and me.

    I'm torn in two, in
    tears so blue for love
    of Momma too but,
    here I am bitter, lost,
    scared and alone
    with life a shade
    of blur because
    Momma favored her.

    Hey now Moonchild,

    Thanx for the bump, I missed this first time around..... This had great rhythm and flow and although the visuals were of a blue nature they were very real and vivid.... Nice write, enjoyed mucho....
