Shade.

The Eclipse came and told me
"you've been a mistake"
and in its darkness
I stood shocked
and frozen
at this callous
assessment.

I waited for it to pass
so that Light
might
shed
some sense
of understanding
on the situation
but when it arrived
all it did
was sting my eyes.

But I guess,

that was

no surprise.

Because really
what you've done here
my Sight said,
is paint a portrait
of darkness
so real
that Light itself
slides
off the surface
straight passed
you
and on
to find illumination
elsewhere.
