The Rain Man

I saw you on that fine morning, sitting below that tree, all alone.
I came to you, talked to you. You were glad to make a new friend... Me too.
Then I started feeling something, something I tried to control. Maybe you noticed it... Maybe you didn't.
You play along... Then you feign interest. Then you drop your bag of insecurities on me and run away.
I'm left alone, standing in this rain, holding your baggage . And I see your shadow, far away, under an umbrella.
As I move closer, I see another shape with you under the umbrella. And you turn and tell me... 'Keep the baggage' and walk away.

Even as the shadow follows me
Into eternal doom as we walk together
Leave me, she shall the moment
The illuminating light disappears forever
Yet why is it that she considers me her own
Even when she knows that it is for naught
Seperate we will and must,
further pain to cause for her
Is it for loyalty to me she walks with me
And weep blood for me when I part
And what shall I consider of her
When I shall have to leave her in the light
For without one the other may die in sorrow
Yet sorrow is all we have in this happy world
O my Shadow, you complete my shattered profile

forever a memory in my mind, she who stood for me.

Slowly, like a doom machine, it falls on me
Filled to the brim with a goo unknown to me
Shaped like the ideal human mould
The goo fills me at first as a liquid would
Then slowly, as the liquid dries out I can feel the force
Pressing on me from everywhere, to form an ideal work horse
Pushing out the me from me, like a task
Replacing me with nothing but an empty mask.
