Little Shadows


In the silence of the world
Little shadows softly creep
Running, stumbling, tumbling, leap
Without sound, nary a peep

In the madness of the world
Topsy-turvey upside down
Inside out and round and round
Sprinting senseless, no-where-bound

Wherefore art thou?
and who am i?
beauty unfound
apple eye

On your sleeve for all to see
or sneaky, silent, stone wall be
Do you care — do I care you care?
Maybe; maybe not; left (un)shared.

Unreality, realer than real
All you know and all you feel
Contradictions, paradox
Non-existence, there is no box.

Will you please me? no one will?
Just keep swimming; no choice still.
Forever sad, empty, dead.
Hollow chest and vacant head.

Fallen tree, no one’s around
No ears present, still a sound?
Out of sigh, beyond my reach
Feels like: no sound, tone, pitch.

In the stillness of the world
Formless shadows flee and flit
Crying, wailing, screaming, weep
Souless, soundless, endless pit.
