Poem – Shadow

Recently, my best friend from college and former roommate came across some of my old poems. I wrote this poem probably in 2003.

You have become my shadow
To the earth
Your black nothingness follows me
How I long to embrace you
To be apart of it
That nothingness you became
Your form is woven in black
Misshapen from the truth
But always by my side, you stay
Warm as the sun
Cold as the night
Even there in my dreams

With you, I feel complete
I am whole
With your black nothingness next to me
