Friday Poetry: "Dark II"

Hey all! Yesterday was just not my day. I edited a bit of Frozen Hearts after I posted, but I really wasn't in a writing mood and I quit after half a chapter because it was going nowhere. :P But today I was feeling much better - after school I went to Starbucks, re-edited said chapter, and edited two more. Plus, right after this is posted I'm going to go edit another chapter and go to bed early for once.

So today was definitely a very productive day, and I'm quite pleased with myself. :D Wrote the third instalment in the mini-Friday Poetry series "Dark and Light" yesterday. We've explored the not-so-good sides of dark and light, so now we're moving onto the better sides of each - yay! I personally find happiness much harder to write about than sadness, so it was quite fun to challenge myself with this poem (and I'm already considering ideas for Light II!). 

What do you guys think of it in comparison to Dark I and Light IIs it too similar - or drastically different? The goal of this series was for me to kind of be a bit more creative in my metaphors of light and dark, because as we all know I tend to use them a lot in both songs and poetry ;) Let me know your thoughts in the comments, as always!

love, Topaz

Dark II

such an odd thing it is, I have always believed that in the light we are withdrawn walls carefully built around our hearts masks carefully tied around our souls armour worn to every battle and in the light, every word every exchange, every sentence spoken is a battle such an odd thing it is, I have always believed that the dark may break down our walls untie our masks and easily, oh so painfully easily uncloak us of the armour we have always held so near such an odd thing – but not so odd, I have come to learn because perhaps we all crave the blindness and the awareness the protection and the vulnerability the intimacy and the solitude darkness brings
