Shadow Self

sun,
limpid and lustrous
you linger behind me.
I feel your warmth pressing
pining after, like
a lover in pursuit
persistent, yet patient.

shadow self
has me collared
captured and confused,
caught in a nightmare
of continuous loop.

let your light, sun,
pierce a thousand pricks
penetrating me,
destroying and dismantling
the demon darkness.
free me from
shadow’s folly.
