Poetry

I love the Dark

i love the dark because it hides me

it protects me from the truth

the earth shakes me but i’m rooted.

life begins underground and continues in the dark

what can attack me in the depths?

no strike

no fire

why would i leave this safety?

 

I crave the light because it’s lovely

It’s rumours of beauty astound me

What is a sky and why is it blue?

What is a world where everything is new?

Colours like purple I can only imagine 

Heaven and angels seem like something worth having

My imagination terrifies me

Which is why in the dark is where you’ll find me
