The Lost Years

moonlight

I lurk in the shadows unnoticed,
the days pass me by with gleeful, careless abandon,
as i sit in the shadows, hidden.

there were nights bejeweled with stars so bright
i blink from the glare that hurt my eyes.
there were afternoons so still and airless 

as i lay forgotten, suffocating in the dust.

there were days so dark with storm clouds

i strain to see the road before me.

i stay in the shadows uncertain,
the moonlight bathes my dreams
in a silver blanket that engulfs me
in obscurity.
