April 2: Denial (#NaPoWriMo #NaPoWriMo2020 #GloPoWriMo #Poetry)

 

DENIAL

Not trying to unsee

the light. Just engaged

to midnight, eternity

familiar as my love.

Her touch, though tender,

hums and haunts and hunts,

so I remain, blind

and safe, a bat

cozy in leather

dark, dumb, as the world

hangs upside down.
