My Shadow - Poem by DEEP DARK SOUL POET

There is this shadow that is following me
With every step I take,
Slowly it creeps towards me
Approaching me with extra care...

I've always known it was there
And I kind of enjoyed it’s company,
Until the peaceful silence was broken
With the sound of tragedy...

A knife cutting my chest
Passing through my heart,
Destroying everything we shared
& Causing me great pain...

Why did you this to me my shadow? ?
Why did you stab me in the back? !
What had I done to you? ..
I thought you were going to be my best friend! !

And now while I am bleeding
And my blood is covering the floor,
No room is left for you dear shadow
Because on my heart, I have closed the door...

Sorry for that dear shadow
You have started the end,
I never wanted things to end this way
But from now on, you can't be my friend
