The Darkness Of Daylight

In the darkness of daylight

I pause to wonder

how it ever came to this.

Bleak,

black,

no sign of the sun;

for all I know

it could be midnight.

The stars,

the moon...

they’ve disappeared too,

leaving me sightless

with only the sound of my breathing

to prove that I’m alive.

I touched on this metaphor in one of my poems I didn’t really like. When I felt cold and lonely, on the beach, on a beautiful day. So I get it. I don’t really go outside anymore, now. I don’t know your situation. Just sharing.

“And don't you know that sunshine don't feel right
When you inside all day
I wish it was nice out, but it looked like rain
Grey skies and I'm drifting, not living forever
They told me it only gets better”
- Mac Miller
