I need the darkness

As much as I need light

For it hides many things

I don’t let others see

Like the way I cling to sorrow

Before giving it flight

Or how I let regret float

On an unforgiving sea

Like the way I let loneliness grow

Feeding it my worries each midnight

Or how I let my depression

Roam unchecked and free

But it’s the anger I fear

Carrying its infected blight

Like diseased leaves

Falling from my tree

Where upon the ground

It rallies to fight

Furious demons gathering with

Raging tongues that can’t agree

I sit and allow the turmoil

Carelessly giving into my plight

And wait each day for the sun to rise

And look for hope in its guarantee

That is when I search for you, the man

I always dream about at night

The one that won’t fear my dark

Who won’t turn his back and walk out on me

The one whose touch is like fuel

Allowing the cold inside me to ignite

The one who will save me from myself

And allow my everything to finally breathe
