Poetry Tuesday – Black

Black, the absence of color,

Though a shroud to cover

And hide many things.

Hovering and huddling around me,

Blackness invades my heart.

My eyes can’t see

In such foreboding, thick darkness.

Now my heart can’t see

Inside itself.

What choice but to surrender

To the looming, relentless black,

Rather than blindly follow

A path that may not exist

To some falsely conceived

Sick kind of hope.
