The Absence Of The Light - Poem by TP Sage

In the silence of the night
when the sharpest edges
are softened
by the absence of the light
and a new moon glow
reveals the path less traveled
without advice or hints or judgement
if it’s wrong
or if it’s right
That’s when I’m frightened by the dark
Enlightened by the dark
And I’m dancing without music
though all my golden arrows
have badly missed their mark
In the stillness of the night
when all movement
is hidden
by the absence of the light
and a new morning glow
is but an expectation
of the exploration
of the certainty of  today
That’s when the whispered voices
come unhindered through
And I’m afraid for you
My thoughts delayed
for you
Till the whispers
softly shred your memory
to the winds
The silent stillness of the night…
…it never ends
