30-Day Poetry Challenge: Day 3

Day 3: Open to Interpretation – What does the word “shadow” mean to you? Write a poem about it.

No matter the sun, no matter the light
I could stand with my face upturned, 
feel its heat upon my face, 
or read by the brightest lightbulb,
and still, lurking beside me, behind me and within me, 
is a darkness that cannot be illuminated.

About nikkimmascali

I am an editor, writer and New Yorker who has ink for blood and the blog name + tattoo to prove it. Also of note: I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. This is my blog about reading, writing and absolutely no 'rithmetic because I am horrendous at math.
