Poetry Tuesday: Shadow


He walks in shadows as part of the night

He becomes whatever to blend in

You cannot always see him, but he is there.

watching, learning, hoping,

for one glimpse into your life

to be part of your life

You are all he ever wants,

but the you he wants you to be

not the you that you really are

He stumbles quietly, whispering words

sneaking past the shadows

becoming part of the trees

becoming part of the wind

You cannot see him, but he is there

watching, learning, hoping

to have you all to himself

to make you who he wants you to be

to be something, everything

in your life

he walks with the shadows

in the night

in the day

watching, learning, hoping,

wishing, planning, obsessing
