My shadow disappears
under a new moon,
only to re-appear
under artificial light,
taunting me
in a momentary circular dance.

My shadow in full moon
is soft and comforting,
a companion
on my nocturnal journeys.

In the sun my shadow
is stark and ominous
a dimensional figure in high relief,
leading or following me constantly
until I seek refuge in shade.

I create you,
my erstwhile companion,
to befriend me,
but you ignore my plea.

I am only left with dreams
of your presence.
