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 I see shadows everywhere.
