Shades of Night


Happy April and Happy National Poetry Month! Of course, to kick things off, I just *had* to share a poem with you all. Let's do this! 


Shades of Night
A Poem

The sun shines bright
Its laser sharp focus burning with light
I feel vulnerable under its warm gaze
Afraid that you can see my thoughts in my eyes
See right through me
I can't bear this brutality, this nakedness of the soul
I need my armor
I need my shell
I need to hide my weakness
I need the darkness 
My eyes don't lie
But you can't see what I don't say
With my shades of night
