‘no shadows cast’

you welcome me
encouragement to walk through the tunnel
into the light
i can’t see the source – it’s too bright
then i hear that tell-tale sound
metal upon metal
scraping, squealing
and maybe one day
i won’t jump out of the way
i won’t just get grazed
but let the wheels grind over me
where is the light now?
not even a pinpoint
no shadows cast
even they can’t last forever
