Shadow

Why have I been cursed with this shadow?
Following me
Perfectly
Why with her is there no tomorrow?
Follow her
And soon you'll see
She rounds the corner with a frourish
But alone she falls to anguish
Yet when she returns the tears don't stain her face
Everything is still in its proper place
She carries with her a facade
Barely anyone sees through a fraud
She's entirely natural
Yet totally desireable
And it's always in the back of my mind
How she follows me all the time

Really good! It reminds me of a poem my sister wrote called "Perfection?" You should check it out!  I LOVE lines 7-12!
