Years ago I met you, since then I got curious, so the chase began. Every time I catch a glimpse of you I tend to follow you around, but you were never in my grasp, never within my reach. Then one day, I found myself asking my reflection why were we going after you. So I decided to stop, just to let it go.
Years ahead and I saw you again, just like that I was back on the chase without me knowing it. This time it was different the room was a little crowded, but I was focused, I knew exactly where to look. All of a sudden when the room was clearing up, as I thought this is going to be it, I saw someone else with you. Then I found myself on the same mirror and decided to let it go.
Years have passed, there you were again, this time I told myself oh not this again. I knew how it starts and ends. But again, this time was different, you have seemed to miss the chase I guess, because I found you just standing still, not moving around like before. You seemed down. Then, what I would have run towards before happened, you reached out your hand. But I walked away. I never really knew what happened then. I just let go.
Years later, I went back to where I left you. You were still there, then the dance began again. The same old music, the same people in the same room and more. I finally got close, and closer only to find out that it was just your shadow.
Over the years I have realized that it wasn’t even you, I was just chasing shadows.
