Living in the shadows, is not the worst of the things that can happen to you.
Living in the shadow of someone else is worse.
Living in the shadow of someone else and feel that you have no way out of it, it’s the worse.
Sometimes it can’t be avoided, sometimes it just feels that way, and in this case it doesn’t even matter if it’s the truth or not, you feel the cold of the eclipse which you witness and what is it that you can do about it. Move away? Go away?
See, the shadows are not so easy to get away from. It’s not them just lurking in, they have this sensory system and feel your darkness, they feel welcomed and they creep over and finally get stitched to your talons. They sense the void in your being and they conquer what you have left for them to fill. This is how the eclipse becomes daily and it’s a part of you and you hate it and yet you embrace it, because suddenly it has been so long and you know no other way to take a breath.
It could take an eternity for one to fully realize let alone to fight the eclipse.
