Hello, Darkness my old friend…
I’ve come to talk to you again.
You used to numb me like novocaine
You used to be my oxygen
In your company I breathe, I shine, I flourish.
Me, myself and you (darkness) alone in you.
You showed me the deepest secrets of you.
How to be alone with my thoughts & you.
Have a good conversation with my self & you…
Bare my bones & lay my feeling out to you.
Think out loud in the depth of my despair alone with you…
Be a man in my own tiny little world you’re a neighbour in..
Fool myself as many times as the faces of the dice.
And when I sob you quench your thirst with my tears.
You giggle at me when I look away.
You make jokes about me when I’m not there.
Stabbing me in the back, Oh dear!
I’m wild now. I hope you know.
I found light in another you do not own.
My searchlight, my lighthouse, my all
My heart, my saviour, my love…
And as I dance In the light I hope you see me.
I found love with the one that glows
I found joy In a land you cannot sow.
I found light after you had me whole.
Good night! darkness my old friend.
