Darling Darkness by Carol Young

darling darkness comforts
while light sears
exacerbated by fears
so calm heals
time to slow down
let a sabbath rule
life is not a duel
let’s play and run
away from the sun
towards night’s embrace
life is not a race
but a long long love affair
do you dare
do I
I hope so
