I was your shadow, your second
hand trade--for everything you
wanted to be.
I thought your light shined brighter
than me but all along mine was
hidden inside my own thoughts.
the thoughts I'd never act on.
Now awakened to my own value,
I need no more to be apart of what
made me unaware. You're the shadow
of my past.
You were what I thought was bright but
you're as dim as the cloud that hovers
over your head day by day. You're some
thing I never needed.
