There are times when I can feel your presence. You float around me, and only sometimes you let me know you are there in the peripheral field of my vision. While you flicker around me you usually tell me stories and I lose myself somewhere inside them because I realize that they are not from inside my head. Oftentimes you even speak a different language... And I understand everything you say, even though I cannot remember what we talked about later. Our relationship is indefinite. You are here when I am here. Sometimes we find ourselves somewhere, sometimes everywhere and sometimes nowhere... You disappear with me. You search for yourself with me. Your shape and traits depend on me. You cannot exist if I don't see you. You cannot live outside my thoughts.
 
I could call you Shadow.
