This is somehow very interesting, not only you tried to recapture the true meaning of dejection but you transferred the later meaning in a very Gothic approach. I'm not doubting that there is in any way a hidden meaning and a very fine target thoroughly mentioned in this poem. Good job, keep on writing. :)
the shadow can copy everything of me, even the smoke but he can not copy the fire and the fire which is inside me, he willingly suppress the fire...and more take the philosophical meaning of shadow....then the meaning of the poem is clear.
This is interesting. So the shadow is the darker side of it all portraid here. One of Freauds contituants Jyung I think it was said something like we should explore our darker side to find our full self. So here you glow to rid yourself of the darker side. Does the you walking have a darker side or was it dismissed with the shadow. I like this poem it brings some new thoughts to mind. Thank you for inviteing me to read
stoics or introverts...or people who are not gregarious by nature like their own company, , , under their own shadow...such topic has always been favorite among poets...miss dickinson's...my soul selects her own society..is an example, though a bit different...but...what if shadow deceives....? ? ?
