One Day

High Noon
A blinding place where
No Shadows reside.
A frightening place with
Nowhere to hide.

High Noon
Under clear blue skies
And a blazing sun,
I'm out in plain sight with
Nowhere to run.

How I wish for the Night and
It's enveloping cloak.
The stillness is calming,
Without other folk.

Deep Dark
All shadows are one and
Exactly like me.
I can hide from the
World. Be safe. Be free.

Deep Dark
It's a place too lonely and
Cold, far too bleak.
Will you come with the dawning?
Today? In a week?

Sun Rise
The daylight approaches,
Night terrors retreat.
My heart grows much lighter for
Today we shall meet.
