Accusation

Light leaves quickly, because it outstayed its welcome
And words drip silently, awfully slippery
Words that could not be restrained
Leaving luck the only hope to believe

Darkness, much sharper than ever recently recalled
Boldness comes with fear instilled within the throat
Of the next voice to fight the urge to bite its tongue

For the life of me, I’ve never known words to be so bitter
When the only ones on your mind taste like blood on your tongue

Night stays at our ankles, nipping at our heels
While the day hides from our faces, ashamed of what’s to come

And we’re feeding each other with spoons and ladles
Helpings of regret

    This is some great writing! But pretty dark, for sure.

    I told you, that’s all I seem to have!

    Wow, those are some pretty heavy words… Amazing imagery though. The thought that I’m left yelling in my head is “BRING BACK THE LIGHT!”. Do you know the saying darkness cannot be fought with more dark, but instead only be overcome by light? Cause that totally is what I’m thinking of. =)
