shadow talking

darkness is the light
it leads me to moments of silence
where truth resides

the daily cacophony
blinds the mind
to what lies in the residues of essence

the winds howl songs of confusion
the sounds of the city deafen
the sights are burdens
tattooed on the hearts of children

time never stands still
laughter is a rarity
sanity is a luxury
hope is the sole provider
dreams trusty companions
sleep infrequent

happiness comes only to those who find silence in the shadows

and it started so well...........................I was let down.......................by "happiness comes only to those who find silence in the shadows" It was like taking a long drive getting out of the car and finding that you never left...............aight?

thanks rp, i think :-) my only excuse is that the stuff in here tends to be from my writing 'practic' sessions & i do not edit or anything. I am actually going through these now to determine which are worth working on and which are junk. easy
