DARKNESS OBSCURES (April Poem-A-Day Challenge - Day 6...Hiding)


darkness conceals

all that is real

that which light

so strongly reveals


memories flood back

in this night’s black

of a time long gone

one fondly looked upon


beneath the years

laughter and tears

one so innocent and vulnerable

replaced with one less gullible


a time of youth

long since passed

years gone by

with wisdom amassed


light interrupts

what darkness obscures

revealing a truth

of which we’re unsure.
