Daylight Can Wait

Phantom shadows pierce the light

That linger down the hall

Creating diamond shaped reflections

Cascading, dripping down the wall


My mind drifts off to places

I have never seen before

A maraud of new emotions

Crowding through my ravaged soul


Messages held deep inside

Memories of long ago

Release with long lost pleasures

Of a time I used know


Like stepping off into the water

Bubbles rising to the top

Coolness gently soothes my skin

Happiness — an inside job


I rollover, grab my pillow

Daylight can wait awhile for me

While I dream about the shadows

Sleeping in my room for free
