Sweet Darkness

...Time to go into the dark
where the night has eyes
to recognise its own.
There you can be sure
... you are not beyond love.

The dark will be your womb
The night will give you a horizon
further than you can see.

You must learn one thing.
The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
except the one to which you belong.

Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
confinement of your aloneness
to learn
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.
