larger than life

so i was walking back
from the pond
to my car
slightly past
the fragile moment of twilight
and my friends were following behind me
shining a phone flash
to light the way
and ahead of me
larger than life
was this magnificent
detailed dark shadow
of myself
more real
than any hollywood image
or high end vr video game
deep, strong, confident
and all encompassing
it was spectacularly silent
yet ever present
in the meaningful moment
of now
and i must admit that i was
somewhat in awe
but strangely comfortable
with the idea
that this positively negative entity
encompassing the dim landscape
was guiding the way
so much so
that i just had to write
this totally
inadequate poem
