Touch the shadows (but don't let them touch you :)

By Shannon Bannister

I touch the shadows

Just to see

If they still frighten me

Then I back up into the light

where I belong


Why am I 

so tempted by

what only longs to hurt me

Why can't I let it be


Why do I long to touch the shadows

When I know they're no good for me

Why can't I let them be


Always searching for a way to win

The battles that rage

Lock myself in this cage

Only one escape


So I run back to the light now

I can see how

my foolishness has cost me

all this time

Instead I should be

Staying right here


I belong

There's nothing wrong

with that

with knowing who I am
