Shadows

Light and darkness dance
Locked together embracing
In a world of tangled gray
A street lamp provides tracing

Bending the blackness
Irregular lines converge
Eery globs in twilight
Ghostly specters emerge

Turning imagery inside out
High definition into bareness
Beauty becomes garish
Altering the mind’s awareness

A silhouette elongates an image
A dream defenseless to a nightmare
As any vibrant color is drained away
Passers by are intrigued and stare

Down the alley along the wall
The umbra renders only doubts
Guessing at the possible vestige
These strange foreboding whereabouts

Easy to find ones self adrift
Surrounded by shafts of darkness
Puddles of distorted bright white
Unmask the unforgivable starkness
