A shadow watched over me, a poem for @NicolaChoi by Tracy Diane Miller

As I sit here quietly
Reflecting on memories that used to be
I felt as though I wasn’t alone
For a shadow watched over me

Surprisingly I wasn’t fearful
I wasn’t gripped by doubt
The shadow knew the answers
My inhibitions are free to come out

I am a writer
Words my heart will ask
Thoughts no longer caged inside
My emotions are up to the task
