Nemesis Am I

Cephissus's son, the child of Liripope
Thinking himself beautiful
Proud was he
A mere shadow he saw

Nemesis knowing, lured him 
Enticing him with nothing
But pride and lies
A mere shadow of a man

At the edge, he stared
And loved himself alone
Until he died
Not even a shadow remains

Who knows his name?
What is his legacy
But pride and lies?
Tenuous shadows fade

Nemesis smiles
