steal from who,
do one of you,
out there have any clue?
there comes a time out of the blue,
when indulgence on oneself seems but few,
Aiming to please near, dear, others, loses sight she,
Of time she holds dear, that none ever knew,
Greedy, abandoned without clue,
When darkness came it flew,
As if on cue,
Here, shadow is metaphorical to time. Time flies, shadow flies as darkness comes, loneliness grows.
