Me: My shadow gives me immense pleasure. It is not as sharp as I am. It owes its existence to me. I can stand in different places at different angles, to impact its shape and size, or to make it disappear.
Shadow: Do you realize why I am a blur? I reflect your darkest side. People see in me, what you do not wish to acknowledge in your existence. I am invisible only when surrounded by a higher magnitude of darkness. But I continue to exist, as a part of the larger darkness in the world, and you contribute to it. The darkness in you blocks the light, and my presence reminds me of what are you blocking in the world.
Me: Deride me as much as you can. But you cannot detach yourself from me, for you will cease to exist.
Shadow: You confuse my presence with my visibility. Just move the cursor on the transparency scale, and you will know what I mean. I will continue to exist in a brighter version, when you are translucent enough to reflect the light that you absorb, to give what you receive, to pass on the good that others do to you. I owe my existence to you, and you owe your conscience to me. I will always remind you of what you are blocking in life.
