Shadow Chasers

on the edge of reality

shadows seduce

the chase begins

to catch reality

is the chase futile



duality of shadows

chasing the illusion

reality can crumble

the most elusive shadows

are those hidden

in the dark recesses of our minds



skirting the shadows of the mind

embracing, dancing

romancing the shadow

of the past, present

possible future



they cannot be ignored

but not always caught

inability to see

all the shadows

at times, they are an illusion

but oh, so real



our inner struggle

 on a quest to constantly grasp

those elusive shadows

it is a winless race

but worth running
