The little people–
the ones that hide.
No, their voices aren’t loud,
but they and you know they’re there.
Whispering and quietly nimble–
they pop up to be seen and heard unexpectedly.
They feel the anger you feel–amplify it.
They feel the love you feel–swoon with it.
Basic emotions–hiding in the shadows.
They may be quelled, but always there–
flitting in and out–
Shadows of our selves
we don’t always want to see or hear.
Shadow people are real, though–
hidden but always there.
