Silhouette
What form would your darkness find
    If it were to take flight
An airy whisper, softest gray
    To hardly catch a sight
The heavy giant taking steps
    To cover light of day
Or sneaking slither, low and long
    To hide where others play
 
The nature of a darkness
    Is often never shared
Parts of personalities
    Are censored and so pared
Daily lives reflecting out
    The best we hope to show
Within us sometimes lurking
    What ourselves don't want to know

Nice and deep. Dark without being cliche. Nice!

Interesting question at the end. Makes you wonder when you look at some people. Good Job.

Synopsis
I began writing this in search of a description of some crows I saw landing on a lightpost. It went a little differently than I expected, but I guess this is where my mind has wandered recently.
