Poetry: Black Light

Black Light

By Dan Leicht

Like a bad day spent waiting in the rain
Like the feeling of another forgotten birthday
Like the burns on battered wrists

Dark blows echoed on the soothing pink shell
Creation flipped by fear
Turning your proudest moments
Into ink smudges

A tall light in the cold
Peering through dense forest

Offering you a clear path
Through disorder
A sedative
To the commotion

Uncertain in your pursuit
But no longer alone
You head for the light
Not once looking back
