Shadow

Standing on the edge
Of the mind
Sitting
Underneath the foot
A slave to the fickle sun
 .
Always moving
In a day-filled dance
At night
Melting back into the dark
Living
Without a life
 .
Looking up
At the eternal master
Who is living her life
Uncaring
Of the one she trods underfoot
Wishing
She could melt into the Earth
 .
A wish
A chance of a lifetime
To switch places
The mirror flips
Sitting
On the viewing side
 .
A whole world
Filled with the never before seen
Color abounds
Life dances with an eternal joy
Not stopped by night
 .
But people stare
Can they still see
The dark shadow
Masquerading
As a creature of light
 .
She, the wisher, sits underfoot
And dances
The wrong dance
At night
She is darker than black
During the day
She melts into the sun
What trickery is this?
 .
The false one
The sun
Shows a color
Beneath the water
Falling in
And facing
A shadowing world
 .
Up at the top
On the viewing side
She sits again
Trembling
Telling of a terror
Of how she was abducted by the dark
Not remembering
That she
Wished for it
And that I
Answered
