If it is so dark I cannot see
How then, do I know it is the dark that envelops me?
I cannot touch these invisible walls & yet it denies my eyes
From seeing all that lies beyond.
So how can it be that I am free to walk through this black oxygen
To seek and find for myself, but not for fear?
And so I sit here in the silent company of darkness daring not to move
For when I stand and reach for light, it strikes me down without word
So down I stay this time to sit and wait
For what I do not know.
Maybe the tallest of all ladders so that I may climb
One rung at a time and reach the mountainous sky
To kiss the moons milky white face and taste a little on my lips
Just enough to illuminate my heart and spark my soul
To light my path & lead me safetly from the dark where
I have been lost for so long.
