The bright side of the dark side

 Your lies menace your appeal

Secrets no longer concealed

Unforgiving ways your norm

Not a chance there’ll be reform

Here today, gone tomorrow

Time spent merely a borrow

Alas, take me, I’m sincere

I’m the being that appears

Strong and steadfast is my aim

There’s no time for silly games

Here today, here tomorrow

I’m more than just a shadow

  1. Namaste Eugenia 🙂

    As mysterious as the many faces of the Moon, as singularly unique as its shadow. Great poem, thank you.

    Hoping all is well. Have an enjoyable weekend.

    Namaste 🙂
