A Poem About Light And Dark


Light spilled onto her waxy cheeks.
She had been consumed by darkness for weeks
and at first, it hurt.
Her eyes squinted as the light glinted in the distance.

“Not far to go now, keep on keeping on.”

Like a hungry animal, she was soon consumed by light.
It burned brightly, erasing her shadows.

“Be brave little one. Keep on keeping on”

She came to the mouth of the cave. Light illuminated.
With her hands holding onto the black, she looked back.

“You don’t really want to go. Darkness is all you know.”

The blanket of dark called her.
It quickly re-absorbed her.
