no shadows
for eyes
to see

no fire
except for the one
extinguishing in me

no care
as the world
turns to night

no heart
to tell myself
to fight

(everything is just dark)

    1. Thank you for your kind words ❤ Truely! I was recently in a major power outage after a terrible tropical storm hit my community and this poem was born from the feelings I was having as the days dragged on and on and still we were without power or light. I'm doing so much better now though since the lights have come back on lol! 😀
