In Your Shadow

A small piece about coming to terms with being mistreated and being ready to walk away from toxic relationships of any kind


You have always needed to be better than me

Always needed to belittle or exclude me in smalls ways

So that only you and I would notice

For the most part, I have allowed this

I opened the door that let your behavior in

I stepped aside to clear a path for you

I dimmed my light so that you could shine

But I know that behind your breaking laugh

and your small stature

You are bigger and darker than you appear

You can disguise that all you want, but you and I know it's there

And I would rather walk alone, than together in your shadow
