Dark

In times of need we seek your counsel

A hub of solitude, you take us in.

Your presence we feel at sunset

Your wrath, we feel from within.

The light has no secret

Its power is laid bare for all to see.

We promise to feed its ego

But these promises we cannot keep.

There is no such beauty as you

You are hollow, deep, and insightful.

From you we all begin

And yet we cower at the sight of you.

Who was it that demanded your head?

Who was it that hurt you?

Do they not feel your warmth as we do?

Are they not protected when they lay their heads?

Predators exploit you for cover

Yet, you are a mystery.

Even when we return to the dust

You alone will remain, our history.
