The daily spur

Today’s word is Shadows
Written for The Daily Spur:

My shadow

When I walk down the street 

She goes out with me too 

I cannot seem to go alone 

No matter what I do. 

When I wear red 

She insists on wearing black 

When I ask her to change 

She won’t cut me the slack. 

I don’t know where to turn 

Because she’s always there 

You think that we would fight 

She must think there’s no care. 

I have to try and talk 

To her before I leave 

Because I just want a break 

With no one on my sleeve.
