A bright day….. Sunshine’s and brought a smile.
Shadow comes in… Slowly
Falling adjacent to me!
And said, “You have become independent”.
Oh! Look who says… I have to!
Ha hah hah… You leave me alone when I am in dark and what I am I suppose to do?
Shhh… That’s because there is an absence of light.
But listen, don’t you think, I am always within you.
Is it? Of course, I am your reflection. And you can see me when there is light.
We are inseparable companions. I am your only follower in the world with the same thinking.
Ya! You’re right…
How did you know that I have become independent?
A few days back, when you arrived home after work. Made your dinner, did some pending work and switched off the lights. I noticed that your mind was in absolute darkness. A place where I am restricted. You were thinking a lot. Conflicting thoughts and the constant arrival of conclusions. I got scared.
The place was frightening and you were alone. I couldn’t help you.
Your mind played games and restored all the memory. There was serious laughter, serious emotion, and serious talking.
I got confused!
There was a light source! But that was not enough…
There was music playing in the background.
I confirmed, that you got trapped.
Your inner call arrived… And then you woke up.
In the morning, I saw no such traces of worries in you. You continued the work and laughed. I saw you were so cheerful and I thought, you know how to overcome your bad days.
What? Are you serious?
I mean… What did you just say?
Hahaha… I can’t stop laughing.
You’re really innocent.
You thought I was trapped!
Ha hah hah…
My dear shadow…
Thinking… Mind games!
All that was, part of the show.
I was watching Sherlock series! And dozed off…
That inner call was my alarm.
Still can’t stop laughing…
You really have a twisted reality.
I now remember what Ursula k. Le Guin said, “To light, a candle is to cast a shadow“.
And that was my laptop screen light! Got it…
