our walk

it creeps in when i walk
i pause and slowly turn around
i did hear it muffled, i know it cant talk

we wait when i do
and we move together
i pause and i can hear it no more
but it holds me back
i return the look i only get in my back
sharp and piercing, not a scar
not a trace, just one last look
its not there

my dog, my shadow
she is there when she is
she is there when she isnt
i want her around, but never now....
