poem challenge: Someone

Little Shadow

She dreamed of someone who couldn’t quite be placed 

The little girl's eyes dim, deprived of reality

Seeking shelter within the nightmare 

Running close, yet so far to the intention of understanding herself 

Why is she running 

Fleeing the war of external threats and internal conflicts 

I feel sadness for this little girl, neglected from childhood, and love

Indeed all too familiar to see 

My emotions captivate, maybe the little girl is me
