Shadow People

Shadow people, is a strange collection of short poetry, haiku and free verse. The Shadow People linger in our dreams, prowl our dark corridors, some with good intentions others with evil schemes. They are our bane, our saviours, in our darkest times will they be friend or foe? The Shadow People live on, a reminder of the deviant worlds that reside alongside ours, in our shadows and souls.

Review by: Stuart Page on Nov. 20, 2017 : (no rating)
I enjoyed reading Shadow People. Elancharan Gunasekaran has made something really interesting here.

I loved some of the haikus. Other will probably take a few more reads to grow on me. I liked the overall vibes, though. I also liked the running theme of prowling shadows, (if they are real,) doing good or bad or just being there and doing something. It was interesting and atmospheric.

Some favourites:

late night call
blood in urine
On my back
kisses delivered
in fury
bed is a chair
no pillow

They were really strong visually.

I've downloaded Shadow People to read again in the future and will likely return to the author for more.
