I’m not afraid of the dark,
in fact for much of my life I have sought it out
because I knew that if I stayed there long enough
you would eventually come for me.
But now, in the darkness behind my eyes,
I have found a new path to your door,
which unlike mine is always open,
beyond the reach of time or tide,
the light inside it ever changing
but never moving.
