Shadows - Poem by Stephen (Steve) Howard

I know that shadows follow me.
Sometimes in front, at times behind.
At noon I'm right on top of one,
but he doesn't seem to mind.
Then on rainy days, or moonless nights,
or in a darkened room.
I know they're simply waiting there,
hiding in the gloom.
I know this shouldn't bother me.
I know I shouldn't care.
But then I close my eyes to sleep,
and they sneak in from everywhere.
