Afterimage

For an instant
a shaft of light
illuminated your face
then vanished

But darkness
could not hide
the question in your eyes
or the smile upon your lips

How can a young man keep his way pure?
by living according to Your word.
I seek You with all my heart;
do not let me stray from Your commands.
I have hidden Your word in my heart
that I might not sin against You.
Praise be to You, O Lord;
teach me Your decrees.
— Psalm 119:9-12
