Repose

Inch by inch it gained,
his shadow,
and falling full upon me
it demanded
my servility.
But I, not to be subdued
so easily,
feigned ignorance.
The shadow flickered,
amused,
and bending crooked
leaned away
to wait.
But I, not to be outdone
so easily,
feigned apathy.
The shadow shrugged,
gently,
and made to retreat,
leaning closer
to bid adieu.
But I, not to be undone
so easily,
feigned sleep
and fell away..
fell away….
