When Darkness Comes

When darkness comes
I hear the constant thunder
and sleep betrayed
when by my endless wonder
I hear the storm
in walls that hold the secrets
there may be harm
and this is why I seem slept
Behold the day
when sunshine beats the hollows
when I feel safe
from hearing endless blows
Sleep well my love
don’t let the noises stir you
for up above
sunny days will be true
Be still my heart
as evening starts to fall
it’s sure to start
in darkness we all wallow


So there you have it! My poem #20 for National Poetry Month

Thanks to Robert Lees Brewer’s Poetic Asides Prompt:

“For today’s prompt, write a dark poem. Cave poems, poems at night, and no electricity poems–these are all appropriate for today’s prompt. Of course, dark has several other connotations as well. An underdog is often known as a dark horse, a villain may have a dark heart, and Batman is known as the Dark Knight. Heck, when I was little, I thought Darth Vader was Dark Vader.”
