Me and the Shadows...

For Tale Weaver's Prompt #33
Hypothetic Realist@Deviant Art 
i keep the lamps low
so the shadows
are not so clear
people say I'm addled
and keep me here
i keep the lamps low
to chase the shadows away
The Watchers never see
all the shadows
that keep me company
i keep the lamps low

Powerful repetition, there is something both haunting and lonely about this beautifully done

I keep the lamps low to, but it is because i am afraid of the dark.. can't sleep in a dark room, and also i like the way a room looks with lamps low when i am awake..

Very mood provoking. Gave me chills which of course I like.

PS I keep the lamps turned high to keep the shadows away.

It has a touch of madness to it and that is what makes it so real.
