Daylight Truth

soft murmurs in the dark
don’t enlighten me
they leave me fumbling
for something real to grasp

let whispers fade
with the light from stars

be silent until
day breaks and I can
see in your eyes
the words that spill
from your heart

(c) Neetu Malik

    resigned to
    where you find yourself
