Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

What is following you
Who is that?
What is that?
Aberration that surrounds me
Following me, mimicking me
Never saying anything and not making a sound
How does it know, knowing what I’m about to do
Is it a product of my future self?
How did it know, doing what I’ve already done
Is it a product of my past?
It only challenges me during the day
For the night time and the darkness seems to be its only nemesis
Only coming out of hiding during the day or when a bright light is near
In the dark hiding like a coward never saying anything, never acknowledging
Only in the night or in a dark room do I feel the freest
I am not the only one that has this problem
As I walk down the street I see these invaders of the day
Surrounding all the unsuspecting souls as they go about their lives
Are we the enemy?
Are they to be feared?
Do they alter our lives in anyway?
Are they just companions given to us so we may not feel so alone?
These elusive creatures of the day
Nobody has captured or studied one
They may be a part of us
Part of our past and or part of our future
Only the Shadows have the answer…………..
