Friday Poetry: "Dark I"

Hey everyone! Well, if you wanted to get all technical on me you could point out that it's not actually a Friday and this post should probably be called Saturday poetry, but I know you are all nice, compassionate people who appreciate the fact that yesterday I was out really late with my family and therefore had no time to either a) find an already-written poem, b) write one on the spot, or c) post it, before I collapsed into bed. ;)

But I digress!

Today's poem is entitled "Dark" and I wrote it 10 minutes ago. I actually quite like the idea of this, so for next week's Friday Poetry (which will hopefully fall on a Friday this time!) I might do a poem called "Light"... you know, as a companion. :D Let me know what you guys think, and I hope you're having a great weekend so far. xx

love, Topaz
