So Alone

A shadow falls over the keyboard as I pound on them
	Silence serenading the pages
As I head to the kitchen my shadow follows me
	Grim specter of the ages
I head to the porch to shovel the early morning snow
	Trusty shadow in tow
The porch, the driveway, the walkway, the steps all clean
	Only my shadow will know
I walk to the post office, my shadow leading the way
	Silent comrade through all
The grocery store, the mall, to pick up my lunch
	My shadow answers the call
My hand casts a shadow as I reach towards the wall
	To answer the ringing phone
Everywhere I look or go my shadow’s by my side
	My God I’m so alone

    It's interesting how the things we dislike the most, seem to follow us and stick close--like loneliness. Great write, very strong.
