' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' Darkness Visible - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Yes I remember
like the scratch

of a match struck
in total darkness

& your face
flaring up

before fading out

startled the little 'Ouch! '
as it burnt the tips of your fingers

following the red glow
as it danced

from your mouth
& swayed away

from your mouth
& swayed away

until it vanished
with a last gasp

the only thing visible
now

in this
big dark world

the sound of your sobbing.
