Dark shadows.

No matter how much darkness I believe

I possess inside my soul, the sunlight

never fails to find me. It searches in

the early morning as skies brighten and

Gulls scream at the clouds above. It

creeps through the luscious green leaves

blossoming into life. It skims across

roof tops and crawls across the cold concrete.

It goes to war with storming clouds

and disintegrates the coldest frosts.

It disperses the shadows and lights

the smallest flickering flame inside of me

dispelling the emptiness of my darkened
