Her Dark Night

Her descent into darkness

Was slow and fast

Building up steadily

From childhood


She hid pieces within herself

Buried so deep

She forgot they were there


But they burrowed

And festered

And took over her

Whole being


She cried and she wailed

She fought and she failed

Until the darkness

Was all she could see and feel


She succumbed to it

Bathing in its blackness

Trusting that this is her journey

Through the dark night

And the sunrise will come again

Now Reading
