Welcome to my blog! Poetry and musings on life, marriage, and parenting - I write about it all. Except cheese. Cheese is gross. 

Shades of Night

Shades of Night

Shades of Night, a poem about vulnerability

The sun shines bright
Its laser sharp focus burning with light
I feel vulnerable under its warm gaze
Afraid that you can see my thoughts in my eyes
See right through me
I can't bear this brutality, this nakedness of the soul
I need my armor
I need my shell
I need to hide my weakness
I need the darkness
My eyes don't lie
But you can't see what I don't say
With my shades of night
