they are shadows

beneath a thin veneer
of living we live our lives
not differently but indifferently
it’s the moon not the shadows
that makes you lie awake at night
or so you tell yourself until they’re gone
they pull the stars from the sky at dawn
but the next night they’re back again
they are what could have been done with time
we only see them in the light of years
they are shadows
