Daily Prompt: Silver Linings (Nonet)

it seems everything i write about
skim the darkness and pain long past
dancing, twirling, just missing
falling back in the mire
where beneath it all
lies the promise
will be

A nonet is a nine line poem, with the first line containing nine syllables, the next eight, so on until the last line has one syllable. Nonets can be written about any subject, and rhyming is optional.
