Darkness

Sometimes I worry about the darkness
that lives inside.

The part that lives
and will not die

The one that is prepared
to kill every living thing

just to survive.

It is a part of me
of which I can not deny

The strength that comes
when I am weak

and tells me
that I will live

forever.

I hold its tongue
and dare not let it speak

the words that
it knows so well.

It calls to death
and bides it’s time

waiting.
