Poem and Photo for the Glorious Summer

 

Darkness Poem (Villanelle)

 

I walk among the shadows in the night

Like a raven seeking fresh bits of bread

I only feel strong when the stars are bright

 

Once the wee dark hours gave me such a fright

As though in darkness life was on a thread

I walk among the shadows in the night

 

In recent days I go to a grave site

To lay a rose for one I could have wed

I only feel strong when the stars are bright

 

We were to wed after a hasty flight

Her body crushed, her lovely soul now fled

I walk among the shadows in the night

 

I now I stalk her killer as I write

To lift the curse of grief off of my head

I only feel strong when the stars are bright

 

He took my true love’s life it is not right

And now I am a ghost who is undead

I walk among the shadows in the night

I only feel strong when the stars are bright
