Writing In The Dark
Bruce Anthony Huston
As opposed to what?
What you don't see can't hurt you, right?
But whatever is there in the light
must somehow keep your senses awake.
Isn't it like drinking alone?
Asking for someone to turn on the light
when you know daylight will, anyway.
No, writing in the dark is not like that at all.
You never scribble the word out
never waste a page by reading
never question your talent or your future;
No, writing in the dark is like crying
with your eyes sealed shut.
Never admitting weakness or pain
until it begins to fall down your chin.
But then we sober up when someone opens the door.

"To Kevin Feeney...thanks for the praise. I'd be interested in your thoughts and why you liked the poem. What are you editor of? That would interest me as well. " -- Bruce , San Luis Obispo, CA.
"I don't like a lot of poetry, primarily because I don't like rhymes. I think good poetry evokes a feeling that the author gives us by uniquely stringing together his or her words. I've read some of your other poems and I think you're on the right track. In other(uniquely strung together)words, "Ya done good!"" -- Patti, Manchester, CT.
