"Come fairies take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains like a flame.".... W.B. Yeats.
"Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss." - Douglas Adams


He is the balance of light and dark,
While I am that of coal and soot.
My darkness reigns in my terror,
That which this light will leave me.
The coal so deep, so rich in black.
The soot so encompassing, covering my back.
His light though small shines bright,
My darkness swallows whole, feasting on past delight.
He looks to me with wondrous fascination,
As if my presence does not bring devastation.
With hand extended I beckon forward,
“Come my child, come appease my forces.”
His child-like innocence so easily quashed.
“Bye-bye little birdie,” and he’s swathed with cloth.


The author's comments:
I--as ever--was in math class and began to jot down the words that came to me. This was actually the first poem I put together with these words, and I wrote another that is similiar, yet it's from a completely different percpective. I've posted this other version as well, so please comment on both of these works!

This was spectacular! The tension and almost confusion from the speaker held me captivated. You really have a talent for this kind of writing, keep it up!
