Flashback Friday: My Eclipse

Although austere,
yet absolute, complete
a solitary existence was mine.

Spellbinding, you came along
unbeknown shade to my shine
the welcome eclipse to a shrine.

An ardent irrevocable ring
no love bargained
boundless as the stars in the night.

Short, tender marriage
christened “Curt!” “Contrived!”
this jubilant union of darkness & light.

Revelations

I used to

lay awake

at night,

Thinking I was

deep.

Marvelling at

my stories. 

Keeping to

myself

Guarding all

secrets,

Putting up

walls. 

A random

conversation,

Something spilled

out. 

Not a lot. 

Few precious

pearls. 

I know  now. 

I am not deep.

I am

Hollow.
