The Dark

Bats escape with thunder and force from the mouths of the wretched and dark caverns

They scream their final proclivity

It echoes dimly into the damp of the eve.

Flapping batters those who stand in the way

Endangering the fools who are curious and seduced about what lies below

It comes desperately….the desires

They erupt randomly with heat and sulphur

Sadness and sorrow that the folding of arms, were held firmly against the heart, instead of opened and welcoming

Pain binds me

I long for you when it’s grip tightens

I long for you…

….and no other….

In these moments,

I wish for you and your understanding

For the holding of your hand

For the kindness of your face

For your steadfastness and strength

For your wisdom and for your words
