Shadowless by David L O’Nan


Once a sunshine veers to darkness.
The soul and mind agree to separate. 
The mind tries to be rational within its madness.
The soul walks shadowless leaving invisible wires behind.

The predator, the voyeur wrapped in straitjackets of chains,
locked the devil, release the sadness.
Salvage the hurt spread throughout his dirt.

The eyes in the sky pop and through the woods they watched as
they took the demons and broke them into earthquakes.
Watching the snakes squirm under broken rocks when the heat dissipates.

Love is the only answer.

It takes the goat to force us from the love into a mind of hate
Love overcomes as the trainwhistles blow.

The predator shall fall.  The voyeurs glass breaks.  The music ends.
The pipes of the city are just whistles.
