Shadows

Monday, January 30, 2017 , , 0 Comments


I waited for the world to slip by me,
Unnoticed I wanted to let things free,
Inside a black and white world,
I would like to spend my days,
With no great joy or regret that I fear...

Under the tall dark trees, I would take a stroll,
Talking to my shadow, that doesn't speak at all...
I would walk, talk and walk some more,
Until I drop, tired and stop eating at my soul.

The bright white shell at the shore,
I picked, admired but decided to throw.
The waves fierce and loud,
Refusing! threw her back with force ..
She lay on the wet sands gleaming,
Waiting for a wayward wave to take her in...

My shadows grew before me,
Another long dark night unveiled free,
I lay down wishing for oblivion,
Where I could vanish and remain hidden...
The moon beam, reached out to unveil me,
I rushed, retraced and hid inside my shadows,
Waited for the world to slip by me,
Unnoticed I wanted to let things free,
Inside a black and white world,
I would like to spend my days,
With no great joy or regret that I fear...

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard. Google

At one, I learnt crawling was fun. At forty one, I still feel crawling is fun #blamemykneesnotme
