Even in darkness

Even in darkness

A Poem by willweb

 

Even in darkness,

when a moonless sky

preaches fear from a pulpit of shadows

pointing elongated fingers…

 

When walls crumble

into a rubble strewn alleyway

and graffiti issues spray paint threats

on frantic facades dripping sabotage…

 

And kindness remains 

hidden away in sealed envelopes,

unaddressed and undelivered,

discarded in bundles of false accusations

 

Her beauty shines unending

in effervescent streams,

illuminating in a photograph, poetry

and a kind word from quivering lips

 

Caressing my heart

in watercolor enchantments

and pastel pleasures…

showing me it is not what, but who

 

For this darkness is hers,

weighted thoughts on soft shoulders

binding wrists in tethered worries

and still she smiles…for me
