There’s not that much to say right now…

Flickers

I’m drifting between shadows and light
darting from one to the other
retreating to the darkness
chasing the light

but it comes too fast, and I too slow
though I may be enamored in its splendour
mesmerizing
but ungraspable

the light is too revealing anyway
exposing all that is wrong
and little that feels right

running back to the shadows
into the darkness
where the light does not burn
and does not shine

either way I can’t see
except for the light dancing
in the shadows
optimism glimmering
within

flickers of   [note: not listed in order]
hope desperation
elation disappointment
bravery fear
dreams nightmares
knowledge confusion
confidence anxiety
belonging alienation

the auspicious
ominous future

flickers of everything and nothing
shadows dancing in light
light dancing in the shadows
