where the darkness? (poem)

where the darkness?

where the night?

come,

giver of light

extinguish thy fire

that i may hide

i seek a cloak

that may cover me

that i might be

enwrapped

solitary

that i may unburden

my troubles

in your omnipotent being

that i may silently weep

alone

that no other may share

the bitter tears

the pain

it seethes

through my very entrails

it consumes me

mercilessly

i beseech thee night!

bear me upon thy fiery wings

i flee

i long to flee

far away

to join eons

of light

of night

to rid myself

of mortal trappings

to seek Charon and

journey the river Styx

where darkness

is forever

i long

for

what?
