  • The farther away
    I stand the
    bigger and
    longer my
    shadow grows

    See the umbra
    the deep dark
    a shadow dark
    a total eclipse

    See the penumbra
    a halo forms
    near to shadow
    a partial eclipse

    My shadow self
    is me distorted
    there but apart
    the shadow land

    Deep and black
    shadow dark
    Hiding fears
    and failures
    from me

    The farther away
    I stand the
    bigger and
    longer my
    shadow grows
