Obsession's Shadow

 

  I became obsessed with the shadow of a beautiful woman that

I saw in the city streets each day, So I cut the shadow free of

the woman, and folded it up, and put it in my brief case, and

brought it home.

  I turned on all the lights so I could see it properly, and then took

it to bed and made unabandoned love to it, till I was finalled sated,

and then I slept.

  In the morning when I woke I could not see the shadow that I had

loved, but saw instead that the bedroom was full of other shadows,

there was no furniture, there was only shadows, and the rest of the

the house was the same.

  I looked out the window, and the world was also shadows. I looked 

at my body and that too was shadow. and then from the spare room

I heard a sound, a laugh, and then I saw the shadow that I had 

loved come in, but she was no longer shadow, she was flesh, my 

flesh, and then I heard a knock on my door, and saw her open it,

and standing there to greet her was the woman that I had cut her 

free from, and the woman looked at me and called out, " Thank

you sir for making my lover flesh and blood! We can be happy now!"
