Oh, this darkness! How comfortable it feels,
all my sorrows, it so benignly heals.
Enveloping me, in so comforting an embrace,
it wipes away my fear to dare and to face.
I listen to the music of dripping water,
washing away all the wounds I bore;
as the grit and gore get washed away,
I feel as if I'd bloomed just the day before.
Suddenly, a knock penetrates my retreat,
bringing the ground back under my feet;
my time with dark was finally done,
so helpless, I switch on the light.
Watching the haven I'd spun,
wither away from my sight.
I wince as the light highlights my scar,
feel myself get extinguished of power;
Alas, the truth had to be faced,
All the comfort, was wisps of smoke I’d chased…
