Me And My Shadow

A big black dog is following me,
Everywhere I go,
I don't know where it came from,
But it just seems to grow.
Every time I look at it,
It gets bigger, and more black.
I cannot make it go away,
It just will not turn back!

I close my eyes and make a wish,
But my wish is never granted,
And I feel I am just a fish,
Taken from the water, and supplanted,
Into a hostile environment,
Where it's impossible to survive,
How long can I suffer this,
Do I want to stay alive?
