My Last Great Darkness

My Last Great Darkness

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

In the stillness of your sanctuary

"



























I remember

When it swallowed all light

The first darkness

That crept slowly into the edges of me

Isolation as all else faded

Terror as the night howled

Haunting silences with a fragrance of lavender

Yet I stood

Uncertain, but defiant

And the enlightenment spoke

Showing me that every cell

Every thread of me

Was inscribed with your name

So now I exist

In my last great darkness

The angel calls “Tranquility”

Waiting

Wandering

I sit sighing

Seeking with every breath

To bless you

Seeking my homeland

Within you

Though for now

I am merely

A silhouette

In the transcendence

Of your incandescence

In the stillness of your sanctuary

So utterly breathtaking the words are that you are always able to weave...so stunning, I am always amazed. The first darkness is always the worst, especially when you can't seem to understand what you're feeling. But as it visits you time & time again, you come accustomed to how it makes you feel, becoming comfortable with the certain dark place it drags you to. Darkness is scary...but that's why we have pens & notebooks as our friends so we have a positive way to cope.

Thank you! May you find beauty always within you, and all around you, even in the darkness.
You are a master of the word. It humbles me to read your works as i feel so inferior. Well done

You have a way of creating thoughts from a palette.. done before but - rarely as graphically, gently or , passionately.
