walk-dark

Come see my darkness, take my hand

And you will know me like none have known

Let me show you my edges, cuts and blemishes

That none can see in the blinding light.

 

Come see my darkness, take my hand

I will introduce you to my friend, the night

Who embraces, loves and does not judge

Who cleans while you are asleep in bed.

 

Come see my darkness, take my hand

I will show you the place you can find me at

And see me at my best in my worst

When everyone says I am not around.

 

Come see my darkness, take my hand

Let me open my box of fears and worries

You can hold them and feel their texture

And then we can lose the box in the dark.

 

Come see my darkness, take my hand

We can drown in the shower of our secrets

Let’s unfurl those tapes that we preserve in our lockers

And forget what shame means.

 

Come see my darkness, take my hand

I have been here long enough to know

I will hold the torch for you, as we walk

I will help you through the maze, my friend.

 

The darkness is forever true

It doesn’t lie with a new color each day

This tramp that I have fed for years

Steals my time and runs away.
