the pain streaks through my soul on it's way past my heart.
the darkness follows behind like a lost puppy it stays close on pain's heels.
a flicker of my light makes both shade their eyes as they pass it.
the light tries desperatly to ignore the intrusion.
it pulls up strength from empty wells, scrapping the sides trying for a bit more.
the darkness spots a weakness in the light as it tries to keep up with the pain.
it must stop to fight the light as they're natrual born enemies.
the light cowers, afraid of it's own death.
pain pauses for a moment to watch the battle, excited by the heat of the fight.
it finds it's own inner strength to grow,taking in all the glories of the epic fight.
the darkness overcomes the light, crushing the light into a spark.
the light quivers and begs, desiring only the right to live.
the darkness showing mercy gives it a cell.
hanging the key on the wall it bids the light farewell and wishes it the best of luck in suriving.
re-joining the pain, they continue on their journey.
leading them back around through me once more.
with each pass by the light, now caged in it's cell, they laugh together.
the future is theirs and nothing shall take that from them.
I grow with each lap, learning comfort in the pain and darkness I accept it.
I write letters now to the light, wishing it well and keeping it alive with my words.
will it ever be strong enough to break out from it's bars and fight again?
the answers unknown but the hope stays with it.
may I stay strong enough, understanding enough,and forgiving enough to enable the light that chance.
