Dancing Shadows



Songs of the future,

From somewhere further than the future.



These shadows


On the walls of my bedroom,

Performing a perfect ballet of anxiety.

With movements expressing an infinite way to move,

I am . . .


But, like the sun,

One cannot stare at the shadows for too long,

Or else.

Or else . . .

I close my eyes,

But, I can still hear their songs

In the faintest whisper beyond the wind.

I try not to invite them in,

But they beg me

To live again.

And play some piano from my phone.

“I do not wish to be a piano key.”

These shadows want inside my head.

Please excuse

The darker tone,

And now I live alone.

Usually when the tides in my mind

Have crashed against the shores

An infinite amount of times.


Then the shadows disappear,

And I cannot hear

Their whispering songs of fear.
