Shades of Dark

Sonnets of emotion; love and devotion

Poetry of gloom and despair

Words that swell from within

Seeping doubt and fear


Alas the pen will scrape the bottom

Of the well I wish to dry

But brittle, little shards of black

Have crusted in my eye


Tears will form, puddles made

And ink again will flow

Pools crinkle up my sheets

The sunrise makes them glow


Perhaps today a limerick

A laugh to share with all

Or maybe a teeny tiny Haiku

Powerful yet small


The mornings bring answers

Always something new

But as the day brightens

I find I have no clue


The sun is high and I am low

Waiting for the night

There I’ll share my world with demons

Where the dark share equal sight
