A little frightened,

A little abashed,

The tiny coward heart finally stepped out

At that full moon light.

Uncertainty and unbelievability , with excitement and uncontrollable emotions.

Frightened Emotion of being followed

By someone.

Someone whom he may know,

Who may know him.

But still the factor of uncertainty

Was there.

Walking through miles away

Crossing the pebbles, ups and downs

Crossed the fence

Not geographically, but mental

That made him sentimental.

Taking a glance at moonlight

He took a step back

Then took a step forward

Seeeing the situation awkward

He realised that it was his shadow only

Following him back.
