Shadow

I was walking at sunset,
same as I always had,
while my shadow stepped beside me,
sames as it always did,

but then I stumbled
and I missed a step,
but my shadow did not stop,
refusing to break stride.

I tried catching up,
but I was barely keeping pace,
I followed just behind
as my shadow stayed ahead,

and then I realized
I was the shadow instead.
