Dark places


Do you know your dark places?

Secret place, the light cannot know?

Do you know anger, and hate, and rage?

A depthful blackness,

where all things come not with logic,

or thought, or honor,

Just a need to give equitably,

that which has bought you to this.

Do you know your dark places,

desolate places devoid of joy,

Do you know sadness, and despair, and doom?

The urge only thinly veiled,

to bring all these things to an end?

To consider seriously the ease of the procedure,

contemplating what comes next?

Is there anything there?

Is it blackness?

Would that be better?

Is there a hell? A heaven?

A place for angels and demons,

gambling over confused specks passing through time?

Do you know your dark places?

Do you know the heaviness, fullness, emptiness, confusion?

The feeling of bursting and shrinking all at once?

Do you know it?

You do?

Then tell me there comes after it,

a finish.
