Dear shadow

Lying in a misty mellow meadow
just me and
my shapeless shadow.
I cry cause I’m to shy
To show him how
I’ll have to go .
“Dear shadow
Wipe that tear
From your eye .
I wish you could hold
my hand so you can
Understand.
That as time
goes by
We will
Shrivel up
and die .
so say
goodbye
to the sun.
cause the
The deed
Has been done.
Oh
this is to much
To bear .
I wish we could
Go back
To where
Our eyes
lit up with light.
Instead of
dimming down
Deep
Into the night .

You sure known how to write dark poems, your imagery is superb I can't help but feel anxiety which I am sure you were hoping for. Excellent write as usual, maybe you could join the Ghost of Christmas contest, not that I would want to lose to you, but I suspect you have some great ideas of a great poem with a twist. Anyway just a thought.

Thank you...Teddy

I was inspired to write this when I watching a cat stevens concert he was singing wild world. and I noticed that on the ground his shadow grew enormous and I saw this I thought through time as he got older his shadow will get and smaller and smaller. Until finally both he and his shadow are gone.

Thank you...Teddy

You should look at the rules of the December contest, what I meant was write something, it has to be about one of the 3 ghost's of Christmas, or even all 3 with a twist, it's a really fun contest. I am not sure this would apply as a contest entry dear Edward.

Thank you...Teddy

Okay
