Shadow

Always, from the corner of my eye,

I spot your lingering shadow

just waiting for the moment

that I will let you into my soul.

You wait knowing that soon

my strength will falter

and it will be all too easy

to settle in like home.

The constant reminder

is more than most could handle,

but is a scar that I will wear,

and with pride I will bear.
