My Beloved Shadow

In the darkness I stand

Hand in hand with my Shadow

In the light I am alone

Surrounded by people I don't know

One man raises his hand

In greeting to me

And I look away

Praying for the darkness and

My Beloved Shadow

Late at night I lay in bed

Safe in the circle of my Shadow's arms

By the light of the day I can be found

Sitting at a desk in a building full of

Haters and posers

They look at me and cannot see

Why I love my Shadow so

Or why his heart beats for me

We may not understand each other

But there is acceptance and

Our love is unconditional

Here I will stay, for all eternity

In the darkness, hand in hand with

My Beloved Shadow
