Meet Me in the Dark by Nick Pipitone

Meet me in the dark

We have much to discuss

We’ll topple the patriarch

This society is so unjust

Meet me in the dark

I’ve been waiting so long

Is there still a spark?

Is your love for me gone?

Meet me in the dark

Don’t leave me alone

Give the door two knocks

Make your presence known

Meet me in the dark

Don’t let anyone know

The door will be unlocked

Let’s make our love grow

  1. Meet me in the dark… even the title alone is attention-getting and memorable. I love the repetition of that phrase throughout the poem. It provokes the reader’s thought about what actually happens in the dark, where dark is – i think, is used as a symbol of an unlikely situation which can be solved when the partners comes for an agreement, a meeting with solutions. It’s likely to mean, coming and sticking together in a tough situation helps come up with a solution. Just thinking as I read. The style is great, the allegory rich. 💕💖

    Nick writes of the darkness and the doubts and uncertainties that plague it. But just behind that thick veil there are sparks of hope, passion, struggle, and unity. We are the darkness and the light and all that falls in between. Love can sprout anywhere and guide one towards paths of brilliance. Let’s move forward with this realization.
    Congratulations Nick!
