In Darkness
Author: Shiloh


In darkness
there is time for thought,
in darkness there is time for tears,
in darkness there is nothing new,
in darkness there are only memories
of you.
I seek the dark times
where my tears are not seen
or suspected,
and my sobs are muffled
by my choking them back,
as if all is well within.
In darkness.
I hide,
I nearly smile,
I cry a while
In darkness.
You, oh my old friend,
are my shelter,
you are my safe place,
you hold me within your walls
wherein I can feel safe…
and alone…
in darkness.
