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.
