Welcome The Shadows

Daylight Can Wait

Phantom shadows pierce the light

That linger down the hall

Creating diamond shaped reflections

Cascading, dripping down the wall

*

My mind drifts off to places

I have never seen before

A maraud of new emotions

Crowding through my ravaged soul

*

Messages held deep inside

Memories of long ago

Release with long lost pleasures

Of a time I used know

*

Like stepping off into the water

Bubbles rising to the top

Coolness gently soothes my skin

Happiness - an inside job

*

I rollover, grab my pillow

Daylight can wait awhile for me

While I dream about the shadows

Sleeping in my room for free

  • Gina C.about a year ago

    Beautifully worded. I especially liked these lines "Daylight can wait awhile for me While I dream about the shadows"; sometimes we do need to stay in our darkness and shadows for a bit to get to a brighter spot ❤️
