ECCLIPSE
(7/31/13)


I
do not
curse
the light

I allow
those
who need
the warmth

the illumination

to enjoy
their comfort
in the sun

they are more
than welcomed
to that
obvious
glare

as long
as they
do not insist
upon my companionship
in their daylight
delights

"you don't
want to do
anything
anymore!"

I am
just another
human

doing
what needs
to be
done

I simply
prefer
the shadows

I see
perfectly
well
in the
dark

please
go on
without
me

I'll
remain
here

to thoughtfully
consider
our differences
