Negative Light

imagesDHNGGKL8

Born in absence of light

Raised within the darkness

Grew up inside shadows

Set free to fly at night

 

Grays begin to quietly fade

As if swallowed by obsidian

Blackness my companion

All form of light betrayed

 

Pitch of onyx never known

Well before or ever after

It has a certain warmth

Yet comfort chills to bone

 

Contentment found here

Inside this heavy cloak

Surrounding me wholly

I watch ME disappear

  1. You know you’ve hit the jackpot with me — darkness, obsidian and onyx!!! YES! A dark but delightful poem, John!
