Light's Denunciation

The light: sun, smiles, truth,


But I just see exposure;

Explicit, naked, violated,

Wrapping my arms across my body in protection,

Hiding, obscuring, shadowing,


But the blemishes shine through.

I step out the door with failure on my lips,

I cannot speak,

I will not see,

I will smash the silvery glass that reflects my monstrosity.

Electric off,

Candles out,


Finally... comfort.

The night hugs me light a blanket,

My eyelids relax,

I take a peak - see nothing.

Relief cascades across me,

Here I am invisible,

The only appearance I can bear to behold.

The End
