What carries me along in night
where darkness blooms ‘neath candlelight,
when whispers echo loud through thought
are only dreams in cobwebs caught.

Dreams hidden in the shadows fall
that dance before me on the wall,
until I can no longer bear
the weight of things I cannot share.

For it’s in moments stirred within
these dying embers breathe again,
they call to me in midnight hour
where daylight fades in darkness’ power.

The memories linger like a breeze
then swiftly bring me to my knees,
I feel the world begin to sway
as I, once more grieve yesterday.

For all the losses I have met
the tears that keep my pillow wet,
rise up once more to meet me here
within this cage of my own fear.

Till morning streams across my face
to bid me come and leave this place,
yet knowing I’ll once more retreat
to my dark place...this bittersweet.

Being in a dark place is not the problem for or to me.... It is the inability to see or visualize the a way that i (we) can live with...or change
