Dark Feelings About Daylight

Dark Feelings About Daylight



For those people never charmed

by dawn-to-dark,

who pull the shutters closed.


These lines are written to channel a declaration.


It’s okay

if the taste of sunlight

is bitter for you

or if you can’t find acceptance

among the tinny voices.


I’m equally perplexed

about those wildly dependent

on the communion of camaraderie.


Like you,

I’m always leaning in the mirror

trying to comprehend why summer’s torch

is always blinding.

But I think I never will.
