Longing for Light

Mithras statue Roman

Mithras, the ancient Sun God vanquishes the darkness. TJ Paris Photography©

In the darkness my beating heart

Sets me apart

From the stillness

My black illness

Lost in a spiral eternal

Night infernal

Must end with morn

Come palid dawn

In the blackness I lie awake

Wait, for daybreak

Must banish night

With sickly light

In response to Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge – Daybreak using the poetry form “minute” 3 stanzas of 4 lines each with 8444 syllables and an aabb ccdd eeff rhyming scheme.
