I Choose Shadows - Poem by Barry Middleton

I choose shadows and the cave
for there is too much grief

far from time's lost utopia
beyond Peak Tenerife

I choose shadows and the cave
and shun reality

safe from all brutality
illusions cannot hurt me

I choose shadows and the cave
far up the mountain side

beside a fire I guard my soul
in woods where hermits hide

I choose shadows and the cave
Atlantis is no more

the hope I had for all mankind
rests on the ocean floor

Topic(s) of this poem: brutality, despair, grief, isolation
