Following in the dark, always watching, and always close.
It’s never far behind my side, or far from reach.
It stays by my side, even when I don’t want it there, I can never leave it.
It follows me wherever I go and it does not leave.
It is the dark side of me that I can’t escape from, the never ending gloom to my light.
It wants to devour me.
To become one.
Not two separate beings.
I want it to leave me, but I’m too afraid to tell it to.
My shadow is a part of me after all.
