the darkness.

 

she told me all about her dreams

and about a thing called love

 

I’d never heard it’s like before

so I asked her what I could

 

she spoke of things beyond my ken

of lands where strange things grow

 

where little girls & little boys

reap what their parents sow

 

I asked her where this land could be

& whether we could go there

 

but she answered that it’s here & now

and I only need to look there

 

she laughed at me and I at her

as the darkness fell away

 

she took my hand & softly gave

a kiss of life that day.
