Message to Readers

Do the lines flow easily because they're so short? Do the stanzas sound finished? Should it be longer? Do the descriptions work?
And most of all, is it intriguing enough to make you want to read the story? How could I make it clearer / less clear?

The Sidekick in My Story

July 19, 2021

I never thought I'd be
The sidekick in my story
The one who saves the day
Then fades right straight away
The one they do not know
But tells them where to go
Who cringes at a touch
Who seems to know too much.

I never thought I'd be
The sidekick in my story
The nameless one in black
Who's always looking back
Afraid of something strong
Always forewarning wrong
Who's neither snake nor swan —
Who saves them, and is gone.

I never thought I'd be
The sidekick in my story
Who's always just in time
Her hood all smeared with grime
Who runs, her cloak she clings
Wrapped up within her wings
Who waits, just out of place
Who tries to hide her face

I never thought I'd be
The sidekick in my story
Who's not the one to soothe
But always tells the truth
The one who walks in dust
The one they do not trust
The one who wants no fame
The one who hides her name
This is a poem about an author who is stuck as the mysterious sidekick in her own story. How do you like the descriptions?
