her secret acquaintance
in the shadows of the day, loneliness crept in.
she could feel him lurking in her bedroom at night.
even in the happy moments of her life,
he never completely left.
she was the only one who could see him.
to others, loneliness had no acquaintance with her.
when looked at, she would appear to be a girl without shadows.
however, he simply hid himself behind the facade of her smile.
and of course she had no one to tell about her secret acquaintance
because if she did there would be no reason for him to stay.
