The Darkness

Tags: love, dark, longing
Tonight I feel the oppressive weight of darkness

A blanket of silence and darkness covers me

The silence punctuated only by pain's staccato

Pain is now my companion, my bed mate

Tonight the pain pales in comparison to my longing

I miss all of you, the sound of you, your touch

The tears trail effortlessly, silently, as my heart cries

Loneliness can be felt physically, much like pain

Both refusing to be ignored, relentlessly present

Is it possible to drown in darkness, to just be lost?

Just as I imagine it, I feel you, your presence

Your love has invaded the darkness once again

Love, just like the other emotions, is physical

It cannot be ignored, it is alive inside me, a part of me

Even in the darkness, you refuse to let go of me

Always my life raft, holding me tight, keeping me safe

I reach for you in the darkness, knowing you're there

Grabbing you, I realize your love may be enough to save me

With all the worries of life, love simply has to be enough

If it's not, then what will save us from the darkness?
