A Poem by Jason Shadows

How do you escape?

"Smiling and silent dancing within the dark pouring acid rain
Your skin doesn't burn while you seem happy with no pain.


Return to the bridge of tomorrow's sorrow
Wind riding and sea touching on the heart's arrow.


Running to the cataclysm with only love's note
A cycle of haste and hate only to cannon with hope.


Who can blame this upheaval and drowning quietus 
Another road leads to unknown emptiness and rebus.


Skeletonize the sadness and empty memories of the past
Drive forward with such necrotic emotions for they wont last.


Those who came so far and got nowhere in hell's hypnotic scheme
Turn the hands of time backwards and slowly drift into heaven's beam.


In the distant future I can only see mist and a single shadow
I hope it's this ghost walking free with no woe in this everlasting glow.
