Blackness

I want the blackness.

Do you?

 

You who call from your secret world

of light on top

and pain beneath.

 

Do you?

Do you want it?

Want it to enfold you?

Smother you?

 

Take you to another place?

The blackness holds no light, only

the secrets that no one else

can hear, even if you scream.

 

Do you want it?

Do you?

 

Darkness descending, killing the light,

black to rule the day, forever night.

 

Will you join me into the dark,

Into the dark, into the night,

blackness feasting,

all else gone?

 

Will you?
