Merely A Shadow

You are a shadow
no longer real
dark and mute
flat and weightless
in the sun
dogging my steps
like a stubborn mutt
once you were everything
now you are… not nothing,
but just a foot note,
parenthetical information,
not really pertinent to
the rest of the story.

    This is excellent. I like your perspective in this: not nothing,
    but just a foot note,
    parenthetical information,
    not really pertinent to
    the rest of the story.

    I’ll endeavor to see things way, also–it sounds very healthy.

    I hope it would be alright to reblog this post, Debi–I’m thinking Monday or Tuesday.

    I really like Debi’s poem–particularly the ending which shows such wisdom!
