April 7, 2003
in shadows, in

chasing after insanity like it was the sport of
kings crowned at my expense
sun behind me
chasing after shadows
like a favorite pastime played
in my defense
the shadows began this charade

i’ll jump just jump
and see how closely I can come
to landing on my own legs
and run just run
and wonder if shadows like me
ever fade

and when i miss i find myself
still chasing misty-eyed memories
but then i turn against the sun
now chased by misty-eyed memories

but at least i’m still standing,
shadowed legs extending into the light
