OUTLINE ECLIPSED











You dark doppelganger you,
not ever far from me
My damn, constant
companion, you never
never let me be

Oh shadow self, silhouetted
there - let me see you whole
Step out from the gloom,
come over here into
the light, my little mole

  4. The shadow self is an interesting idea. I feel I sometimes have many of them as well as a shadow when there is enough light for one.

  7. Using doppelganger--how perfect. There is a certain playfulness in this.

    This has a light feel to it but I'm reading something under the surface that isn't so much fun. I love that playful last line that almost feels like a dare!

  10. Ha, yes, I think it disarms them when we talk to them and look at them face to face.
