In the darkness!

The shutters come down and the lights go out

The darkness surrounds me like a mother’s hug
The uncanny silence tangos with the stillness
A tiny croak stings like eyes introduced to the sun

People grope around and then present themselves
They startle me or leave a smile on my face
Visions or prophecies form into kaleidoscopic forms
Secrets and hopes grow in gigantic proportions

Sleep departs and my eyes open to light
The visions end and the nightmares vanish
Sounds intrude and the stillness is broken
The darkness awaits patiently for its reign again.
