Silver Darkness

by Mihir Deshmukh   Dec 4, 2014

Coming in through the window,
the darkness illuminates the room.
Not making things visible though,
just igniting their lifeless glow.

It gives out a million shadows,
outlines, of everything present.
Radiates, their burning plea for existence,
transmits, their cry for recognition.

It reflects things,
things unseen in normal light.
Things too scared to show up,
unless called by it's silence's cry.

Yet it shows me things,
in a dim silver light.
Things seen on bright days,
yet felt only on moonless nights.

    Excellent imagery, seeing that which is unseen except in the vagueness of a darkened world.

    I was attracted to this poem because in the title it had "silver" in it and I can't help it I love silver so I had to read this poem, though I'm a tad disappointed it wasn't more dark, the imagery was alright (again I'm like a dog with a bone with it being a tad more dark but that's just me), the emotions were nice didn't really move me, but since you're a beginner it's good that you could do this so congratulations! The last stanza was my favorite in the whole poem, nice read 4/5
