Illusion in the Shadow

When the night is dark,
The illusion appears from the depth.
Fear and expectation
Inexpressible contradiction
Ignorance proved by the denial
It’s so dark,
completely dark!
When the sun comes out
The illusion returns to the shadow.
Tears and confusion
Unforgivable delusion
Clarification made through the light
It’s so bright,
Uncomfortably bright!
