Reflecting Darkness - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Lights reflecting the darkness of my soul.
It has been drenched in sorrow for so long.
Retired attitudes of life lie crumpled in corners,
awaiting restatement of tomorrow's fate.
Silently anticipating the re-issuance of natural wonder;
painstakingly quiet, alone on this deserted shore,
away from everyone, needing companionship.
How much longer can life's horizon stand still without
any encouragement, as lights reflect the darkness of my soul.

    alone on this deserted shore,
    away from everyone, needing companionship.
    How much longer can life's horizon stand still without
    any encouragement, as lights reflect the darkness of my soul. loneliness. darkness, depressive mood. you have wonderfully portrayed it here. thank you Rose Ann
