In the deep distant expanse
That I traverse within, I find
The pit, the darkness, sometimes
Does comfort. It helps to know I cannot see.
Eyes, inward, heart hurting, seeking
Absolution, from emptiness.
And then it glows. You do. You.
Broken journey; you make me halt.
You light that candle, that shines into-
Not just without, but within.
I’m forced to acknowledge; blink;
You cannot know how that hurts.
Even from a flickering candle. It does.
When I cannot but live with so little,
How will I ever measure up to that
Which you give? But take I must.
Live, I shall.
The choice has been made.
I will merge into your light,
Seeking that shade, which I yearn for.
Darkness was so comforting.
