Darkness

Darkness is the absence of light
No faith will bring my fear
Anger is a loss of love
Regret will not accept.

It seems a presence ever slight,
to even those so dear
lose the strength from above
stolen by secrets kept.

Most often lost throughout the night
At dawn it may appear,
The long-awaited dove
and grateful, having slept.

From what place comes this awful fright
Remains still so unclear
Are these dreams simply of
The lies that have now crept

Into my psyche, terror’s blight
The whispers I don’t hear.
Tired by push and shove
and still I’ve never wept.

I shall retreat back to the light,
let go of all this fear.
Embracing now your love
All gifts I must accept.

The life I’ve found, it seems so right
And I will meet You here.
Take my life, too, above.
This way I chose, for none except

Myself. To you I must requite,
And yet they do not hear
My words, so devoid of
Justice to my concept

Of Your presence. My life they spite
I think; I am too near
This lie. I’m not above
And they have been twelve-stepped.

This message that they choose to fight,
This truth I hold so dear,
With no denial of
Living by your precept.

The dark must be absence of light.
Faith can remove my fear.
Anger comes from no true love.
No regrets; I accept.
