Shadows of the Mind

Shadows of the Mind

In the shadows of my mind I wander,

avoiding the sunlight of truth.

The cool shadows mellow the heat,

caused by the presence of you.

The shadows are consumed by darkness

and your face is the light to behold,

but it fades and fades and fades

As reality attempts to take hold.

So in the Shadows of my mind I wander,

avoiding the sunlight, quite lost.

I stumble blindly in the darkness,

alone, paying the ultimate cost.
