Poem of the Day: 25 Apr 2005

Shadow

The darkness covers the floor
hides the door
and draws light from my eyes
When a match is lit
the darkness rips
and hides in the corners of the room
I thought I escaped it
The shadows had faked it
I stepped toward the sun
but my troubles had just begun
The shadows were hiding behind me.

Justin H. (Middle School, 2004-5) (p#97)
