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.
