Walking Amongst The Shadows.

Walking Amongst The Shadows.

A Poem by sunlight

Its a dark poem with overtones of sensuality





In dusk and grey, when come what may

This eager darkness threatens day.

Squeezes, dampens, falls as rain,

Clutching sidewalks lengthens pain.


While swimming in it’s ungodly sea,

This oily blackness, blankets me.

I shiver, breathing, forcing air,

My spine a river flowing with fear.


With hands of dank, insidious intent,

I am captured, bound, felled and spent.


Yet hearken, solemn angel weeps,

Come hither lightness, soft it creeps.

As tendrils, smoke- filled day-time eyes,

Blinking dawn exhumes and cries.


Free me from this night time grip,

Kiss me tender with honey dew lips.

For walking amongst the shadows been,

My lonesome spirit seldom seen.


With wistful morning dusky sighs,

Embrace me between your cloudy thighs.

And gasping, falling down loves ravine,

I echo blissful day break’s dream.

Walking Amongst the Shadows...
There is a classic style to your writing - at least what I've read so far - that I admire and find completely enchanting. I have missed this, I realize it as I read your work. I have missed walking through the corridors of art a poem can take one.

'My spine a river flowing with fear...' is an amazing description.

'Embrace me between your cloudy thighs...' is deliciously sensual.

'I echo blissful day break's dream...' brings on a graceful curtain fall.
