  In the Twilight of Night

When my mind is dark
Like a tightly shuttered house,
I strain to hear my voice.
And find One light
in the attic
throwing shadows
behind a decade
of cobwebs
casting the minutest
of reflections,
a microcosom of
life mirrored in dust
and walled up wishes,
just waiting in the
rafters of my old house
like soft breasted
bats hanging upside down,
and fast asleep,
before soaring
into unbidden flight.

Great poem, Kristen! I love the use of metaphors in it.
