he felt the sting of daylight as it surged into his field he knew it didn't play right as the next moves were revealed no dim nor dull, it stayed bright and it gave no pause nor yield he felt the sting of daylight and his eyes still have not healed a shadow born of midnight he had only known the dark he came to see such new sights at first flicker of the spark and so he looked for others for more sources of the glow but what he would discover he was not ready to know he felt the sting of daylight as it surged into his field his eyes did not adjust right still a new world was revealed overall it was too bright it was then his fate was sealed he felt the sting of daylight and his eyes still have not healed a shadow born of midnight who did not fit in the day did not belong in the light where his dreams would have him play and so he looked for others for more ways that he could fit but what he would discover was he was not meant for it he felt the sting of daylight as it surged into his field stood at the edge of twilight seeing all that night concealed was broken by this insight and the truths that it revealed he felt the sting of daylight and his eyes still have not healed a shadow born of midnight who had only known the dark found the day did not fit right would not be part of his arc and so he looked for others for more ways he could survive but what he would discover he was not ever alive he felt the sting of daylight and right then he should have known that a place which is that bright it would never be his home (5/15/24)
