Poetry – The Torch is not the Only Guide


If the darkness has found you, fear not.

If it  caresses your ears with cold, velvet words,

you may listen without tremor.

If it clasps and twists your body,

you can move with it unbound.

If it blackens your vision,

close your eyes and

make it blacker still.

The darkness knows one path,

so pull it close

and it will shrink,

and fade.

Own your dark,

not for power,

but for freedom.

Cast it out

and you will cleave yourself.

Own your dark, child

and it will not own
