Writing Challenge: January 28th, 2017

Prompt: Imagine you are someone’s shadow for a day


I trail behind you- silently- every day.

I do nothing but observe.

From moment to moment,

task to task,

I stick to you,

Quietly watching, and judging.

I go unnoticed most of the time-

expect the occasional glance in the peripheral vision.

I am always there-

Your forgotten companion.

I am most apparent in the sun,

least noticed in the dark.

I am the proof that you are solid.

I am the proof of the light.

I can larger than life, or a small puddle at your feet.

I am a copy of who you are.

I am your shadow.
