    Casting Shadows
    holding the light above my head and behind my eyelids so I can see
    bright red thundering
    of view I see and there is no following this taste for certainty is a ghost on a wave tiding the train on the backskirts of a foreign city
    you a traveler
    you a tourist
    tranquilized by a variety of tinted windowscreens

      often when i was a kid in NY and rode the subway, i felt like this..."tranquilized by tinted windowscreens and the rush of them rushing by"

    as sheryl crow once sang..." i felt like a stranger in my own life"

    and once we leave this world...i wonder...will we become the ghosts traveling...and will those looking out the window see us and believe.

      "ghost on a wave tiding the train" is a wonderful metaphor. The 2nd and 3rd lines are great i remember as a child staring up at the sun with my eyes closed and seeing the redness of my blood through my eyelids that's what the reminds me of. Not sure i quite understand the whole piece but very well written. Great Work

    Hmm interesting I really like this, remind of a story I always listen to from the "Father Gilbert" series. Nicely penned. And I also like-

    ghost on a wave tiding the train

    You have some nice metaphors here.
