Dark Places

I retreat into a darkness … deep … soft … endless …
It seduces me … that unknown blackness …
Lust and passion live there ..

Why did I run from it?
Why do we all?

Fear is no guardian …
Always it trapped me …
Blocking the sunlight …
Quenching the dawn …

You must see the paradox …

For true hope and beauty …
Shines in that darkness …
Run from it only if you don’t want to live …

Look to that black place … aim to see plainly …
Seek to embrace what most hide from …

The nastiest feelings …
The darkest of thoughts …
Cleansed by the bright light of day …

Cling to the darkness … deep … soft … eternal …
Ecstasy waits there for you …

And in that a new birth …
Our true souls entwining …
Dark and light melded as one …
