Light and shadows play across the room
branches from a tree seem intent on reaching right
in through the window
Darkness arrives to rattle the senses
and a steady stream of thought
refuses to slow down
enough for sleep
and soon you know this night
will never end
a mind-walk into the light
can calm and soothe the troubles
Take away that sharp edge of nerves
about what an uncertain future holds.
I used to fear what hid in
darkness and in shadows
but not anymore.
Hell is not the place we may
go to when we’re dead
sometimes it’s already here
among the living.

*My mind wandered all over the place with this. Had a huge unexpected expense with the car yesterday. For a while it
triggered that old fear of the ‘what if’ in my mind. When you are on a really tight budget and you know you just cannot afford any extra expense and something like this crops up, it kind of knocks the wind out of your sails for a while but, life is what it is and, we go on.
