The Shadow Knows

I walk in the dark

A shadow walks too

I quicken my step

The shadow does too

I stop to grab my keys

The shadow does too

I continue walking to my car

The shadow walks too

Once more I quicken my step

The shadow does too

I reach my car and shaking quickly get in

The shadow does too

…no matter how I try

The shadow of my former self won’t leave me alone.
