Embracing Darkness

Embracing Darkness

I feel nothing.
My mind numb.
And my heart, empty.

I see no harmony of colours,
Nor any chaos of emotion.
Eyes fixed on a blank canvas,
With nothing to spoil its surface.
There are no rivers but a lake,
Water still and unmoving.
It reveals not its secrets,
Muddied by stagnant waters.
Should I embrace stillness,
Or seek disruption?

How perplexing is Human Nature,
Not able to be still but afraid to move.
Am I embracing the darkness I manifest?
I think I’m in love. Am I crazy? Maybe.
But this darkness is more alive to me than any light.
