Alone

by RD Larson


Sunlight shafts my heart
while darkness lingers
and danger walks.
I say I bleed but
You can’t know.

Sunlight hides my pain
while cold fingers
and danger calls.
I say I die but
You can’t hear.

Fear rides the sun
Across the sky
and danger waits.
I say I know but
You can’t tell.

Darkness swallows me
while sunlight fades
and danger slips
in beside me but
You can’t feel.

Nighttime slices my soul
while darkness stays
and danger calls.
I say wake me but
You only sleep.
