I am several days late on the April PAD Challenge, I know. But here is my poem for Day 2. http://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/2013-april-pad-challenge-day-2
Dark and Light
You are my dark; you are my light.
Black and white transcend to grey when I’m with you.
You are my balm; you are my blight.
Dessert ground upon which I stand is ready to crack in two.
You lift my spirits; you bring despair.
Waves do flood this ground untouched, untracked.
You sing so sweet; you whisper curses in your lair.
No remedy can bring offering to this one attacked.
You coo with honey; you snarl and hiss.
And now from this abyss your face I never shall see.
You were my dark; you were my light.
Empty and waiting, stung and numb I deem me to be.
