To view my future
She looked at my palm and read
'Twas the dark of night

"What cannot be seen
Has no need of being seen
Nor will it matter"

"Safety in darkness
Is to become the darkness
Comfortably bred"

"Trails of tear-stained words
Leading you so far astray
From intended loves"

Spanning the darkness
I search for a softer palm
To place in my own

So the nights go by
As the wind on my back shifts
Along with my thoughts

Until once again
Darkness embraces me here
In her crystal ball



Here's to you and here's to me and should we ever disagree, here's to me!

Caro Capo, the beautiful title filled me with expectancy and what I found pleased me. You even made me think of quantum theory with your second stanza! First there was darkness but in its core the light prepared to be born. How comes we have that strange feeling of safety in the darkness of the night and contemporaneously we have such a strong yearning for the light?

Every line is poignant to the sensitive heart, mon ami.

Even the darkest of humans know that there is something inside them that is spiritual. The creator put it there for them so they would know He exists. They may outwardly deny Him, but they cannot lie to themselves in their most quiet of moments. To see the light, one has only to close their eyes.

So many thanks for your incredible reply mon amie.

("Quantum theory"? If you look behind you and have a binocular, that would be me running in the opposite direction trying to catch up to you)  

Here's to you and here's to me and should we ever disagree, here's to me!

We all walk the same Path, distance is an illusion. And while we walk we communicate and isn't that reciprocally enriching! You are always so very insightful and I also love your sense of humor. Grazie caro Capo!

Ciao!
