Night Concealed By Day: A Poem

I find myself betrayed by the morning’s light

Yet I find truth in the night’s dark sky

Blood shot eyes find redemption in the shadows

The truth burns away in the light strong or mellow

I see myself trapped behind these walls

No way out, no one to hear my calls

Alone in this darkness, I wish for day

At least then my true self will be stowed away

I fear not what night brings my way

But the fear lies in knowing what they will say

The time will come when night will turn to day

My eyes will be open, crooked smile

And my shadow will be sheltered in denial
