Light


The sunlight pushes itself out to rise against the sky,
so to the night I've grown so fond, i must sadly say goodbye.

the daylight comes and rips away the solemnity of night,
the revelation its accompanied by i always try to fight.

the revelation that my true colors shine in the glowing light of day,
the hold of daylight shows my scars, its grip i cannot sway.

the truth that come with daylight causes my very heart to chafe,
the nights my only friend now, and the only place i'm safe.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
