Shadow

It is like a shadow,

It follows me everywhere

And try as I might

I cannot get rid of it

It shadows me night and day

Lurks near me all the time

And when I am happy

And least cautious of an attack

It pounces savagely

Nothing can kill it fully, I think

Except maybe me;

But either I am just unable to

Or I am unwilling to.

It lurks near me all the time

And never leaves me alone

And during the brightest days,

This shadow is sharpest;

This is the shadow of sadness;

Ever looming and ever luring..
