Shadow Man


At the periphery, shadow and soul step together, every move reflected, a reminder of missteps I've taken in this long, empty life. I walk into mist; sever self from my shadow; step alone.

"Sever myself from my shadow" - lovely! Out of curiosity, is that a typo in the first line ("every more reflected")? I assumed you meant "move" there, but maybe not...

You're right - Thanks for that catch.
