A shadow
Not one that creeps up behind you
But one that is inside you

My shadow is me
Or what used to be me
It haunts me day and night

When I wake up
It’s already there
I can’t get rid of it
But not for lack of trying

It stays above me
Darkening my path
It won’t leave me alone

My shadow is me
Or what used to be me
It haunts me day and night
It won’t leave me alone

My shadow smiles
I frown back at it
It beckons to me
But I ignore it

I try to run
I try to hide
But it always finds me
Its cold hand
On my shoulder
Gives me the chills
It haunts me

My shadow is me
Or what used to be me
It haunts me day and night
It won’t leave me alone

I’m sick of it
I hate the darkness
I turn around and face it
But then it fades away
