how the shadows fall on a person.

in the curves or hollows, whichever, where light doesn't reach; when they think no one is looking or listening.

in a moment of weakness when, grabbing the nearest thing for support they suck air and hope they won't fall;

in conversation when someone stops, a little stunned, their eyes dark with sadness;

when all the lights turn off

a glimpse of within in how the shadows fall.
