Rainbow in the Dark

Rainbow in the Dark

Jonathan J Ames

Trapped in the realm of forever, alone.
There will be no one to catch you
if ever should you fall, aft into the black of sky.

Mantled in the empty fleece of night.

So looks the colour blind eye,
everything shines with different hues of grey.

As internal storms rage, perpetual.

Forced to dance with magic shadow demons
who shackle me to the earth,
a broken mirror image. The reflection I see is me.

This hollow cry, who'll be my rainbow in the dark-
