Certain darkness.


There is a certain darkness
in his growling edge of mind.

Say you believe in something,
say you dream of me.

Creature comforts calling;
calling trumpets freedom, to a
creed. To a natural seed

that will - germinate within and sing

of my freedom to fly above reality.

To die with some dignity, to rip
at the world with tears of ecstasy

to believe.


There is a certain darkness
when we look away from light

I say I am here seeing, sensing,
taking in and learning.

The darkness is a dream -
a crawling youngster of needing
comfort - but demanding

to reach higher and flower

within certain limitations

to live on with delight and desire
for despair at the torn edges of our world,

our one reality.
