Seeking Radiance in the Gloom

- The Black-Eyed Seeker of Light

By Dawnxisoul393artPublished about a month ago 1 min read

The night gave me a pair of black eyes

A shroud of darkness to conceal the light

Yet in this veil, a hidden gift I prize

A chance to seek what shines beyond my sight

These ebony orbs, a canvas for the moon

Reflect the world in monochrome sublime

The colors of the day become a rune

A code to decipher, if I take the time

I use this gift the night has so bestowed

To pierce the shadows, find the glimmers true

For in the dark, the brightest stars explode

Illuminating paths I must pursue

The night enfolds me in its sable cloak

But through these eyes, I find a guiding glow

The world transformed, its mysteries evoke

A sense of wonder that I long to know

I wander through the inky, velvet skies

My steps ignited by the stars above

The night has granted me this precious prize

These black-shrouded eyes to seek the light I love

In this domain of midnight's ebony reign

I cultivate a vision sharp and keen

The darkest depths cannot my sight restrain

For I have learned to find the light within

So let the night enfold me, wrap me tight

For in this veil, I'll seek the radiant truth

These black-rimmed eyes will guide me to the light

Revealing wonders beyond the reach of youth

The night has gifted me this special sight

And I will use it to transcend the gloom

For in the dark, the brightest stars ignite

And I will follow them until I find my home
