The Darkness

The Darkness – Jacqueline Nash

Shadows, I see your darkness
but tell me what you see,
do you see my tenebrosity
or my luminosity.
I fear my heart is black,
it’s searching for some light,
but light is so hard to find
in the darkness of the night.

The blackness seaps insidiously
into the void of my soul,
filling it with it’s intensity
as is it’s propensity.
I fear my soul is tainted,
it longs for a sign of light,
but light is so hard to find
in the darkness of the night.

This night passes by so slowly,
it plays with my sanity,
my eyes see only lunacy
affecting my mentality.
I fear my mind has lost it
I can see no glimpse of light,
but then light is so hard to see
in the darkness of the night.
