I silent walk through tangible dark,
it’s soft solidity makes its mark.
Into mind and onto skin,
Darkness gulps, it drinks me in.
A veiled whisper, hand on chest
It’s traveling paths that I know best:
“Here you are, you fragile beast
I am Darkness, you my feast.”
I start to gasp, I cannot breathe
The darkness smothers with its sleeve.
My heart it screams, I taste my fear
I can’t get out, my end is near.
Struggling, writhing, where’s my mind?
I need to think, escape to find…..
Then I look, through I see
This Darkness, it plays tricks on me
You are not solid, transparent thee
-fireflies, dancing playfully.
Darkness breaks, it struggles, goes:
“Oh please don’t go I love you so”
I stroke it’s cheek, my lungs relieved
“Darkness you’re my mind only.”
Visiting home, it’s holidays
This place I know, from my school days.
It’s known for sunshine, beauty too.
But a tunnel, I find, go through…
