Darkness


It is not a thing of choice or content
It is in all forms a cursed sight
To move away from it, all fight
It bears the stamp of contempt
Yet it transforms the light
to a need- holy and important.

    It is not a palpable thing
    But the absence of quite striking
    A coolness in its depths
    That colors black and white
    Into shades of grey
    Reminiscent of the rainbow (Report) Reply
