"Autism & Memoirs of an Old Maid"…C'hele's Story

Shadow People

Filed under: Poetry — C'hele @ 07:45

Can you hear me?I know your there.

You have lingered there in the shadows

Like some apparition for quite some time.

Do you have any intentions

Of walking out of my dreams?

You have made it quite clear

That you have a presence.


I have sat here day in and day out.

The years quietly wander by

While silence has been your main calling.

My black and white world has always been

A domain full of grey shadows.

But. There in the corner, you still linger.

Will you ever make your presence known?

If you ever decide to do and just to let you know,

I adore colour.

P.s.  I ‘m such a hyprocrite.  I needed to write this and post it.  Thank you all for your wonderful support.  I love you all! C’hele xo.


  1. I’m glad you wrote it and posted it. It speaks volumes. I know this feeling. I could have written it.

    Nice job. Now go enjoy your break!

  4. Corina: You are such a honey. Thank you for all your comments. Its amazing what happens when a person “let’s go.” When my intentions to let go of this blog for a while this poem almost immediatly popped into my head. Its therapy for my soul. YES! I intend on taking that well needed break. The problem is, is that I’ll miss being here- alot. I’ll write when the mood hits I guess. Hugs to you and thank you for your well-wishes and support!

    Random: LOL~! It’s certainly better than a “blind spot!” I don’t think I would like that….

    Tara: Hugs back to ya sista. Your a doll. xo
