I don’t know where this shadow found me,
I am not sure that even matters,
all I know is that it followed me home.
step in step, it mirrored my pace
if I skipped, it skipped
There was no use in diggin' my heels in
it covered the dips in the sidewalks ahead
never warning before I fell
and when I stumbled, it’s black would kiss the pavement as I did
as in reassurance that we were a team
and it held onto me like a keepsake
but never keeping me
I fell in love with its darkness
and it became close to me as a lover may
in a sensual hiss it called me by name
and soon it became that there was no
beginning nor end to us.
*The man who walks in the dark does not know where he is going. John 12:35
