A Letter From My Shadow

In response to Ermilia and the picture & write challenge.

I received a letter from my shadow which read: “You  know you are nothing without me. Your entire existence depends upon me. When you don’t see me you are nothing.”

I no longer see my shadow. Not a single being has a shadow. We wander. The moon is large. The light is bright and we should be able to see our shadow.  We don’t.

We form a single line marching to I know not where. People fall into complete darkness at the end of this line. My turn is coming. The darkness envelopes me. I look for my shadow one last time. I am  nothing.
