Dark Caress


Daylight

brushes the shadows aside

 

My ebony shield

is gone

 

The light of day

exposes

my wounds

 

The world

sees

 

Eyes

strip me naked

 

The demons

move in

 

Their assault is

Brutal

 

I cower

back

to a world

that my eyes alone

are privy to

 

A kind soul

extends a hand

 

He sees the

thing

that I’ve become

 

I turn away

and retreat again

to the dark caress of the night

 

I’m safe

but restless

 

I’ve found respite

until the clouds move aside

and the moon

eats the darkness
