Her silhouette is beautiful.
Her eyes…when she cries are like ice.
A face frozen in time.
A wonder to behold.

She stares back at me with grey pupils.
Her brown hair dances in the wind.
She tells me she feels dead inside.
But to feel dead is alive.
Or so I’ve been told…
Feeling alone is alive.
To feel something is alive.

So I don’t push her away.
I motion her to come closer.
And she does
She creeps closer
And closer.
Emotionless.

Like the object that she is.
Like the robot that she is.

She tells me that she hates me.
I shrug it off. I don’t care.
But her words pierce me
She’s good at it
Like she’s Ares.

But we’re a single being,
Whether she likes it or not.
She is part of who I am.
I am part of who she is.
We’re made of each other,
We’re made for each other.
We see through each other like glass.
We understand each other’s darkness
Because we’ve experienced it together.

There’s no rope to hang.
There’s no knife to stab.
There’s no pill to pop.
Only each other.
And I like it that way.
She is my shadow.
A piece I wrote a little while ago, it's a personification of something...much like what I did with "In My Dreams".

I actually wrote it the same day.

Was wondering the entire time who she is.  Didn't realize she's your shadow. :)

Chilling and strangely familiar. 
It's as of you and the shadow are one person, but not the same.

The whole shadow thing....is a personification of sadness. 

That's what I had in mind when I created the character of "the girl".

Very nice! I just wonder if in your first stanza that you intended to write "is" rather than "are". The verb -"is"- refers to 'her eyes', no? 'Eyes' is plural so "are" should be used.
"Her eyes…when she cries is are like ice." But of course I could be misinterpreting your message. 
A fabulous piece of writing! Keep up the great work!

This piece is just stunning. And I can relate so much to this, it's scary almost. That I found this at this exact time. 
Gosh! You are a great writer, let me just tell you that much! :D
