My Dark Shadow

There she stands

Larger than life

No distinguishing marks

No discernible features

Just another shadow distorted

And without distinction

A nothing much to see

Possibly even something scary

Stretched by the harsh lights

Filling up the sidewalk

She walks beside me

Seeming to float on air

She is only darkness

Devoid of light

She is the dark side of me

She is my shadow
