Exposed.

Posted on Updated on

You became one with the void

Darkest thoughts tethered

With the night, covered in plain sight

Embracing the finer parts of the abyss

Intentions behind a smoke screen,

Not for long

And not a moment too soon

A touch of high noon

Left your darkest self exposed

Shape and form revealed

By the burning glow

On the terrestrial plain;

Your shadow.

    I love the shadow imagery here. Even though it is not said till the very last line it is felt throughout the entire poem. Beautiful.
