Me And My Shadows - Poem by Frank (Black) Blacharczyk

I see shadows when I close my eyes
shadows black and white scuffling
looking for somewhere to go
some shadows are still and stare
some shadows walk away
some shadows dance with a strobe light in the background
I drink I pray I eat I hope I dream I tremble I watch
Don't you see I don't understand what's going on
Don't you see I can't see what's going on
What is reality mom what is reality
Turn on the TV my child turn on the TV
I see lips move I hear vacant words eaten like junk food
Something is missing something is lost
is it my cat is it my dog is it my sanity is it my freedom
is it my love

Twists and turns people tied in knots
shook up and shaken sit by the water for peace
a peace of mind with no desire to leave
a peace that surpasses all understanding
I dropped my feet into the cool spring waters of Lake Ontario
As the water rippled gently upon the shore
it spoke to me massaging my rambling thoughts
