Dark Poem by Tajma Hall


The sea upon me
people see this wash on me
wishing I crept into light
this grief shades not this
only fades into the night
in those grief shades
slept in darkness
awaking within a gray drift
cold the in between
on my face held brown eyes
only to hold alone
I conquer the night
dreaming of light tommorrows
landing me between
a sweet rememberance
covering my body
shackling this grief
I pull the shades off cold and dark
