IN THE DARK - PART IV

JUMP.

We may stray on dark roads, 
Find ourselves drowning in the dirt, 
But help is always near
If you just let yourself be heard. 
Where you are soft, 
I will shield you from harm
When your fin is tired
I will lend you my arm. 
Your beauty is best
When you reveal your soul. 
Just trust me, just once, 
Have faith and just jump. 
And feel the tides changing
To finally give you what the universe has to unfold. 


DARKNESS. 

I ran through the woods, away from the pain, 
Away from sad seasons I never wanna see again. 
The deep dark dissolved me, 
Didn't know up from my down. 
But a warm voice told me, 
Don’t be afraid of the darkness around. 
Here you can breathe and never pretend, 
Here you can hide from all the sad seasons, 
The darkness is your friend. 


FROM BLACK.

In the dark, where only Heaven knows my name,
I give in to my troubles
And the scarlet threads of their searing pain.
I let the web have me and face death, 
Turn my ear to the wolf
And let him speak the secrets of his path
As I run myself into the ground.
He nuzzles me,
Warm and soft in the blistering black.
Hidden, solitary, reconstructing reality, 
I strengthen my back.
There is more to do, more to see, 
more to feel and more to be found.
