I’m surrounded by darkness,
No light to harness.
It suffocates me like a cave,
No oxygen for my lungs to save.
I claw, I cry, yearning for light
A radiant aura to satisfy my doomed plight.
Alone in the night, I seize the ground,
Hug my knees, rocking, laying back down.
I’m waiting for the faintest spark –
A flicker, a crackle, sight amid senseless dark.
