A Shadow of Anonymity

Shadow Stalker

A creature of habit, bound by character.

Silently seeking a cloak of darkness,

Shadow Stalker, revels in



Avoiding the light of acknowledgement.

Watching, listening, carefully observing,

Shadow Stalker, deftly deflects,



Hidden deep inside, a second self.

Restrained, held captive by reserved ambition, 

Darkness’s counterpart, desires one thing…



Shadow Stalker, beware, shade the light.

Your silent alter, far from reserved,

outshines your cherished anonymity.



Acknowledgement, recognition, acceptance!

Warmth, comfort, companionship, discovered.

Shackles degraded, captivity cast off, Ambition tasted.



This is my submission to The Artists Challenge,  for the theme Anonymity – Gallery 16.   I enjoyed this particular theme, the basis of it seemed to fit my personality so well.  Please go by Gallery 16 – Anonymity, Premiering August 29th, and see what all the artists have created for this theme.

Thank you so much for the gift, it is just wonderful and so nice. Thank you!

This is a wonderful poem and I really enjoyed reading it. Thanks for sharing this.

I really do have a real pirate in my family tree and he is very famous. I would be willing to bet that you will never guess which one he is! :-D

Love and Blessings,

Your quite welcome AngelBaby. Thanks you for the compliment, and I'm glad you liked the poem.

Now you have me curious, and I'll have to do some research. Pirates are so interesting.

Hi Joanne, Thank you. I find myself changing a word here, and one there every once in a awhile. I guess it's a work in progress. 8-)
