I sail on a dark sea, the sea of judgement

Basked beneath moonlight

Immersed in black waves

The night holds mystery

A history of endless cycles

I do not fear the scorpion’s sting

For I have become her 

Even after all my resistance

The shadows show persistence

And I have danced with fear

It no longer looks so intimidating

Many times, I was intertwined with utter darkness

And it has penetrated me 

Pierced my very body, leaving me in a cold sweat

I felt its skeletal hands creep down my back

Caressing me in my most secret places

The faces I wore in days gone by

Are not the faces of my shadowed side

For now, Dove and Raven, 

Fly peacefully within my aviary
