Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary...
~ Edgar Allan Poe ~

My Darkest Place

Black is made up of many colors, you can find them all inside
I too became this color from everything I hide
But shine your upon me I become transparent then I glow
Just like a prism bending light I am a colorful rainbow
But without you I am translucent, dull, and uninspired
Until you place your hand in mine and then our worlds are set on fire
And when everything is consumed but the ashes burning an image of your face
Into my mind behind my eyes I find my refuge back in my darkest place
Where I say hello to the stinging wasp of deeper thoughts inside my head
And then I say goodbye to the butterflies trapped inside my neck
