Her Shadow

This is my entry for Day 9 of the 2012 April PAD Challenge on WritersDigest.com. The prompt is to write a shady poem.

Her marvelous light envelops
me – sharpens the fuzzy contours.
I stretch across the bright expanse
atop the prints she makes in the sand.
She steps ahead – I keep the pace
without a breadth between our soles.

Though lacking depth and shape beyond
hers, no dimension could compare
to following her feet all day.
I keep close wherever she goes.
Even when the sun sets and night
begins, I never do vanish–
I envelop her existence–
beneath her lips, her breasts, her thighs–
I’ll always follow her back home
and spoon her until night becomes day.
