I've shared this poem around the internet today, and I thought it would be nice to end the day by sharing it here. I wrote this yesterday and really enjoy the feel of it... I hope you do too.
LAUGHING DOWN LONELY CANYONS
Midnight creeps in under the guise of candlelight
throwing specters across the room
and dancing on the walls.
Night like a tomb seals my fate,
as isolation screams in shouting silence.
Looking for a window in a house of tears,
no hope flickers in the opaque future.
Life’s cruel joke delivers its punch line
in a fashion that cuts my soul to the bone.
No one here but the ghost of myself
mocking my own shadow
and laughing down lonely canyons.
