sunlight knocks at my door

as I desperately try to keep it out

the blackest drapes cover my windows

veil me from the curse of sunshine

for I am afraid I will cast an unfriendly shadow

upon the white of my walls

in broad daylight

for everyone to see

this shadow I loathe

because it doesn’t follow me

it has a pace of its own

sometimes dancing

I don’t dance

sometimes twirling

as I maintain my stand

sometimes still

while I move around

so I’ll make sure to keep that ugly sunlight

out the door

so this unfriendly shadow I won’t see any more
