Shadow Of The Night

A lone shadow dances in the light of the moon
Apparition of darkness sways forth and in tune
As a mask in the umbra in obscurity
Infiltrates deepest dreams and haunts you consciously
With suggestion of heinous intent and much more
On the minds of its victim who is rattled for sure

Yet when sun rises slowly and burns into day
The figure; illusion drifts out of the way
Concealed by the light of the morrow for now
Camouflaged for the present yet still there to devour
It’s prey; your worst nightmare; your fears and your frights
As the shadow returns to dance through every night

Beyond Shadows Of Doubt

When we obsess with what is wrong
We fail to see what’s right
We turn the lights out on our worlds
And only have the night

Where darkness so obliterates
The truth in many ways
Missing the good, the better stuff
That brightens up our day

So use the umbra to perceive;
The rays that shine behind
And go past shade with all intent
To refocus the mind

To concentrate on goodness and
The greatness all about
To chivvy up and bring a smile
Beyond shadows of doubt
