Shadows Falling

Shadows falling endlessly
wherever light is found.
Darkness on a spending spree.
The modern merry-go-round.

Think another thought to cover over
all the moods and attitudes
that you don't wish to feel.
Turn around and find, they follow you.

Twist and bend, it doesn't matter.
Work yourself into a lather.
The shadows wait in silence
for a momentary lapse.

Ring another tower bell.
Seek protection in the knell.
Deep and sweet, the weeping.
And the shadows will respond.

Light to dark to nights of indigo.
Starlit skies and sleepy eyes.
Shadows falling endlessly
wherever light is found...
