He walks besides me...

Hes the only one that walks besides me
How much ever I try to avoid him

To start the day, he starts getting close
With him around I feel safe, protected

The try to take him in my arms
Some shy, some sustain, some fail

The day passed by, he got closer
Now I was scared, its getting crazy

I cant play safe, cant get away
I know it wont last too long

We held each other, until sun to west
Now distance did increase, grew longer

He stands there, a dark handsome man
He gazing at me, me starring at him

I turn around, feels like someones watching
No its just my apprehension

I can make him do things my way
And I swear to god, he wont deny

The more I try to get away from him
Theres not a day he doesnt follow

Silly of me to think that way
How can I forget, afterall hes mine

(This time I tried my hand at free verse)

you see him when its day
but if the stars are bright
and there's a balance of light
at night, you'll see him sway

your folks may depart
as they please
your emotions too may one day cease
but he'll stay, he who is your part.

Tomor when the time comes the poem wil l come true in yr real life where this SHADOW 'll be replaced by yr WORST HALF
