Writing Prompt: Today I challenge you write a poem inspired by noir.


The dim lights cast the shadows
The shadows are teeming with secrets
The secrets that many dare not intrude on
Yet the detective charges on
Determination in his brow

For it is in the truth he finds solace
It is the light that illuminates the dark
It is his way to fight the shadows
The way to heal his heart

And it is wherein the shadows
He uncovers the truth
The cheating and the treachery
Crime; it never waits

He lifts his magnifying glass to his eye
Releases another sigh
The secrets that were once hidden
He now brings into daylight
