my little shadow

My little shadow

Stays by my side

Sees how I run

Knows where I hide

My little shadow

Brushes my skin

Knocks on my brain

Tries to sneak in

My little shadow

Covers my eyes

Slips in my ears

Whispering lies

My little shadow

Wraps around me

Crushes me tight

I cannot breathe

My little shadow

Trips up my feet

Swallows my soul

I'm feeling weak

My little shadow

Just like a ghost

Takes on my body

I am its host.
