Darkness

A Poem by luthien7

For the Vibrant Villanelle Contest

"

Darkness bleeds the colors from the day,

spilling light and life at sun's demise.

All is stark in shadowed shades of gray.

 

My lover's silent form against the fray--

a silouette against the fear my stillness buys,

Darkness bleeds the colors from the day.

 

But gone he's been so long and I must stay,

the quiet softly screaming his goodbyes;

All is stark in shadowed shades of gray.

 

Hobbled by my fear I here remain,

from this sad soiled prison brightness shies,

Darkness bleeds the colors from the day.

 

Alone in my self-sentenced disarray;

holding empty space once occupied--

All is stark in shadowed shades of gray.

 

Out there and in the light they do betray

but here within the dark I see their lies--

Darkness bleeds the colors from the day,

All is stark in shadowed shades of gray.

OMG did you wake up in Seattle? My dearest friend as you know I am not quite so much poetic but I do know good work when I see it.

'Alone my self-sentenced disarray;
holding empty space once occupied--
All is stark in shadowed shades of gray.'

An all too common state of being which you were able to portray to me using three simple lines. Good work Luth.
