Favorite Quote:
"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."

Ernest Hemingway (1898-1961)

I feel kept in the shadows.
Deep and out of reach.
I don't know where it's coming from,
But it's there.
Creeping up on me as if playing a game.
It surrounds me and blocks you from my light.
Your face is no longer visible through the darkness.
I am held back and locked in place.
I will be in the shadows until you turn on the light,
To let me see;
To let you see.
We can be happy under the sun,
But never the dark night sky.
