There’s Always A Dark Side

The seldom seen

Eventually the Universe will show us the dark side of this magic we call life,

Celestial cover ups obscuring the normal state of being,

Light fading as the darkening magic evolves, shadow work heightened,

Importance floundering during the declining rays of dazzle,

Pulsating beams disintegrating into black holes of time,

Shadowing the life as humans understand it, highlighting the unknown,

Eclipsing the notion that we hold all the answers, shown the infinite of the mysterious.

This Acrostic poem was written for a challenge on Vocal.

About the Creator

Colleen Millsteed

My first love is poetry — it’s like a desperate need to write, to free up space in my mind, to escape the constant noise in my head. Most of the time the poems write themselves — I’m just the conduit holding the metaphorical pen.
