Not Into The Light
Our expectations are left hollowed out
Like the star-pitted sky. Our hands are cold
And numb as the deepest, darkest, winter night.
We look around for a light to lead us on.
A new direction we can take from here.
But there is nothing, only darkness holding
The deeper shadows that lie beyond the dark.
There’s no way back from here into the light
Of a new day. We only wait for the dawn
To take some pity upon us and lead
The way out into a world made light again.
