Feeling The Dark


Step into the deep
The dark...
Beyond the door
Out of light
Feel it there
It will grab you from behind
It is a wall in front of you
It will bury you
Breathe it
Taste it
Smell it
Hold it in your arms
Let it become you.

Step into the deep
Close your eyes
Open your eyes
It's always there
Feel your feet
Kneel and touch the earth
Lay on it
Embrace it
In the dark it is deep
It will hold you
Wait for the light
But know the dark waits for you.
