Inner Shadows
Author: Rick Ryckman


Haunted by memories in the night.
The shadows are overcast in my domain.
I can sense my fears are on the prowl once again.
I shout and scream my rage against the night.
My nightmares are biting swift and vivid.
Releasing a hidden force.
Lighting the way for the phantoms to enter.
My dreams have fallen crumpled and decaying.
My fears have ravaged my withered soul.
Locked within the glided cage of my solitude.
Where is the golden dream to banish the sorrows?
