Whispering secrets meant just for me
Although I have not been posting, I have been writing on and off. So, once again, I embark on a challenge that I began in 2016, promising myself to never miss National Poetry Writing Month. I bring you Day One.
Oh how I’ve missed you all. This crazy thing called life, well, it can get in the way sometimes. But October is coming and that’s my favorite month. I get to go all ghoulish and horrid, right up to the last day! I can’t wait. The brain is already churning out the macabre and there’s more where that came from! See you soon!
Seek out the shadows of night
Covered in clouds, I cannot see
The dimming of your light
Earth has overshadowed you
Only darkness on your face
Until the sun reclaims the sky
All is not well, in outer space
Moon set slowly, do not leave
Your face, I need to see
For only you can understand
The emptiness, inside of me
