An Open Secret

The darkness inside is a river
With its midnight whispers concealed
Dawn’s life reveals the shimmering trill
Of a melody that never withers

By light or night it’s the same
Thus the open secret’s revealed
Bitter grief with its poisoned teeth
Is joy mercilessly reframed

Just as the cool summer breeze is refreshing
In the winter, the same winds turn deadly

So too are the seasons
Of love and grief


If you enjoyed this blog, please feel free to donate, even if it’s just a dollar. I’m poor and clean toilets at a nameless retail giant. I’d like to eventually make even a meager living off of writing and/or music. If this blog doesn’t pay for itself, then I’ll have to let it go. If you share your email and donate $10 or more, I’ll send you a coupon code for my next book. Thank you so much. P.S. Sorry for the weird number, the .33 is to make up for Paypal's cut.
