My Shadow

While in misery of thoughts
bleeding within
I slumber all night,
With eyes restless
you are with me sleepless.

When I am left all alone
and undone midway
beside me, You lay.

when I am wrong
You are still in my song
When I am right
You are more at my sight.

When I am live
you are the jerks in my veins
You are never away
may it be in pleasure or in pain.

You are not my body,
Are you the shadow of my soul,
my buddy?
