The sun sets low into the sea
casting phantom shadows
reflections of me
and I am surrounded
by my own emptiness.

Editing stage: 


deep poetry
lovely words yours


Your first line didn't work for me
"the sun sets low" It has to be low to set
" the sun is swallowed by" Meaning sounds better
Good theme I go along with the despair..
But I await the dawn where all the shadows will melt, to warm my Soul, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

This is psychologically subtle,
the movement around you of warmth and coldness
shaped in phantoms of yourself.

I still enjoy this, saw it elsewhere,
as you know Joe.

Love as aye Anni
