Shadowy Figure


Aligned by perfect outline,

from steady backlit glow-

shadowy figure stalks me...

but why, I do not know.

Always there at every turn,

in every direction I choose.

Determined, to one day catch up to me,

by whatever devised up ruse.

I fear this shadowy figure-

always at my back.

For I know one day, if off my guard,

it surely will attack.

With nowhere for me to run,

no darkened place to hide,

I know my final day shall be,

when the two of us collide.
