298 : 2/2/99 : Shadow

Follows like a shadow
stretching round corners
faded in darkness
It sticks to you
Shadowed by a grim cloud
Hangs the threat of every life
the promise of the bitter end
The bitter cup it’s only fitting
Casts its shadow back and forth
along and all ends and all
And past the shadows of regret
The something couldn’t ever get
the past the promise and the bet
My shadow goes out before me
Creeping in my sleeping as
a new day dawns
the sun brings its shadows
with it always
