Today's prompt was to write a "never again" poem. Thanks to the PAD community for your critique/comments. :)

there was a time
before today,
when i couldnt see 
the shape of you 
without the shadow 
of me 
lagging behind, 
with a hopeful heart ...
yet, eagerly awaiting
the sun’s departure.
who am i kidding?
you crave an audience
someone who falls for
your false sense of self
the one you make up as you go.
just a fool following a fool.
but never again,
will I look toward you
for light.
for anything.
