a dark 55

The night is my friend
I embrace the velvet darkness
my cohort
my guardian in all my deeds

Dawn sees me hide
quaking
becoming small
unsure
my eyes burned by visions of reality

Weeping
shaking
I wait for dusk
welcoming my friend
cautiously at first
peeping through slitted eyes

In darkness
I need not see

Hey Toadee long time no see. I jumped on this morning to find this wonderful flash 55. Now to check out what I have missed in my month away from blogging.

Mine's up too.

Chica said...

Ah that was refreshing, someone who can actually write..great job man! :)

Toadee said...

Good to see you Shari, when someone says they have to catch up I always start to feel guilty for writing to much lol

Little Wing, it's not a feeling that I enjoy but I write what I feel (and that can be a bit scary)

Hi KB, You can say that but only because the real crap doesn't get put on here hehe. Thank you for your steadfast support.

Akelamalu, as they say there is no light without darkness, I'll go read yours now.

Chica, thank you very much, I'm glad you think so but I'm about to relate a few tales on my blog regarding hoew well I write hehe

Oh, excellent 55! It leaves me wondering what it is that you are avoiding, though. Some painful truth?
