Day 26 – National Poetry Month

April 26, 2019

Prompt #26: Write a poem about your shadow.


I truly am who I am in the dark.
Apart from fake smiles, prying eyes
and positive remarks;
it’s a deep abyss of lies…
as the umbrage takes over the light.

Shadow, bear with me
in hate and pleasure
as I expose my real nature
to the comfort of your eternity;
as the moon shines through twilight.
