Shadowland (Life in the shadows)
(C) Jerry Langdon 2022
Here in the darkness I stare through pools;
Upon a world where light rules.
From a land weaved from shadows,
Where naught but despair grows;
Naught more than grieving sorrows.
I watch these passing until the shutters close.
Ghosts to my world, phantoms of feelings unknown.
For here I am ever only alone.
I peer into these reflections of dream
That are disturbed as my tears stream.
What I wouldn't give to learn to feel
What it's like in a world where I might heal.
Where light .... Oh light, is more than a fancy;
More than these rippled pools of fantasy.
