It's dark and forbidding
Yet it only appears during the brightest of times
It trails behind you
Loitering, lingering, lying in wait
It will walk your walk
But it won't talk your talk
Silently imitating you
Mocking your every move
Starting when you do
Stopping when you do
Each step you take, it will too
Following you until the light fades
And it envelops you
Everything is dark
