My shadow Follows Me

I set a prompt for a friend to write a rhyming poem about a shadow, she complained about it hurting her head, so to prove a point I wrote this off the top of my head, that it turned into a limerick is a happy accident.


My shadow follows me
Will he please not let me be
His incessent creeping,
It leaves me weeping
Shadow, can you not see


Hope you enjoy, please feel free to comment.
