Shadow Envy

Shadow Envy

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

Shadow Envy

 


Oh’ how I envy your shadow

Forever by your side

 Yet never getting in the way

 

I wish our love

Could always be that simple

Until the very end of days

As a kid I would love it when my mom would sing to me the old Vaudeville song "Me and my shadow" til I fell asleep (coz I followed her everywhere lol)

This recalled those days *sigh*
A delightful love filled poem Neville imparting a big punch for it's size.

But love is never simple! As for shadows .. well, you can see them in the light, but, in the dark, you can't!!
I loved this poem, it made me think!

You are welcome
The analogy of the shadow is done beautifully. I like the subtle rhyming. Love tends to get complicated, however much one wishes otherwise. How we wish to melt away yet be part of a loved one's life. "Shadow Envy" Such poetic flair!
