Come, dark night, with your
sheltering cloak of shadows;
Wrap me firmly in your grip.
Merge with the blackness of my thoughts.
Cocoon me in the safety of your void.

I cannot bear the light's reproach;
Exposure of my hidden side
by piercing beams of reality.
Let me slip back, safely concealed.
A lonely silhouette in the murky depths,
A heartbeat in the hollows
of my stifled screams.

"Cocoon me"...there is comfort in darkness at times. I think we've all had days when we feel like staying in bed and pulling the covers over our head.  "A lonely silhouette in the murky depths"...loved this! One can be very content to be there when life is overwhelming.  Strong voice and fine expressions!

Concealment brings to mind why do we slip into the darkness, enveloping ourselves into the night?...Brash light upon who we really are oft times brings us sorrow for the day....Your work is always touching, but yet raw with awareness....If only after emerging from the dark we could see the best in the Light....
In Love and Light...

 Sometimes life gets so hard we just want to hide. We wish for nights to be longer before the light comes calling our name.  Living life is the most difficult job we will ever have.  There are times that I feel just this way.  Your poems is so real and honest.  Namaste Loretta
