My Shadow

As I walk away, I feel so small,
The world is lit up with the night lamps,
The leaves, the grass; the lamps light them all.
Except me; for even my shadow is bigger than me.

It is a nightmare that I am running away from,
Finding a way out of the puddle of blood i have fallen into.
My head aches as the heart beats a cruel drum
I feel so lost; for even my shadow mocks me.

The lost yesterdays and the forgotten chances
Beckon me and return to me a certain guilt.
A tale of regrets and a tale of borrowed wine glasses,
Talks to me of my ego and reminds me.
I am nothing now; even my shadow is more prominent than me.

    This reminds me of the Song from GreenDay–Boulevard of Broken Dreams..
    “I walk a lonely road,The only one that I have ever known”

    And Remember Your Shadow is what you are but even in dark our shadow leaves us,So how can it be prominent than us

    I love boulevard of broken dreams! Its a great song.
    Right, what I meant is that a persons ego destroys their life, and even something as insignificant as their shadow becomes bigger than them.
