OUT OF DARKNESS
Darkness, darkness, darkness
As far as the eye can see.
Though falsehood sheds its light within
Contradictions are unveiled around me.
Unending solitude, which I not claim
Enveloping, no! Despair!
Something gnaws in the far, far reaches
Of a mind that has lost its fare.
Warmth here? Incongruous senses
Disrupting, disturbing and disbelief.
Cracks of light drift across my brow
Like lightning in the deepest of sleep.
Constellations echo with sounds unknown
Dancing a fevered waltz.
Congealed, my blood pumping inside my ears
Hesitations, questioning and false.
Frightened by a touch of an unworldly foe
Unseen, now my attention acute.
Blurred are the lines of reality,
As acuity realizes my truth.
Awake, awake, open your eyes
Infirmed you are no more.
Successfully was the tumor removed
Out of darkness
Out of darkness – and war.
