Catching Shadows By Nightwatch... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr...FjR

By nightwatch, shadows hide
while dream is cast upon the brains
of those asleep in waiting
for shadows presentations.

And some wait, night after night,
suspicious minds lost in dread-
who suffer the naked strangeness
from life's un-godly elements.

Morning comes, and all the eyes
who've spent their night watching-
will realize that shadows light
only rear to the cynical eye.
