in the pitch black of night
i can see your flicker
illuminating ahead of me
but when i turn around
your already gone
sometimes i catch
small flashes
from the corner of my eye
but just as before
you’ve disappeared from behind
maybe you just like casting
shadows that aren’t yours
seeing them dance before you
letting them fade under your control
all while watching others reactions
as they jump out of their skin
then as they come to admire
the shape before them
it dims and departs
how kind and cruel you are
the roles you choose to play
projector and hit man
only the sun can take your fun away
