Darkness wraps me like a blanket

Enveloping me in its cold confines

I feel warmth creeping up,

Alarmed, I jerk my feet in.

I peer outside at the glare,

Frightened, I crouch back inside.

My eyes seek dark corners in the dawn light,

But all the niches are irradiated.

A new day is unfolding,

I must put on my veil, walk out,

Pretend I’m ecstatic.
