I have been there
in the darkness
following thoughts
in whim of wake
across all reason
out of orbit
into some far stranger gate.
Conversations
past and present
speeches made
to unseen foes
imagined failures
planned revisions
in and out this porthole go.

There is a light
behind the blackness
deep inside
the cave of see
sometimes red
and sometimes purple
a kaleidoscope
I made for me.

It is there
to light the darkness
turn the rancor
flay the thief,
just behind the turn of eyelash
is the door to close out grief.

You are right
to stay the questions
the wretched mind
tries to retain
listen how
the peaceful crickets
music of the night remains

Remember all
the velvet touches
songs to laughter
tears of grace,
behind the darkness
night will take you
to a softly keener place.
