Shadow Life

By GTurnbull

Shadow Life
And the reaching
And the feeling
And the drops
from the ceiling
On my head
On my shoulders
Weight of the
world boulders
And the mornings
Not like night time
Offers brightness
But no lifeline
The mind calms in the dark
When it’s silent,
And the reaching
Out for something
With this old feeling
That it is nothing
Without the rush of time
To cast no shadow,
see no path
Clear my eyes in the light
As it rushes past
