Step from the shadows into the dark
Fear not the unknown or blackened heart
Will can be strong with senses dulled
Sharpened and tuned from seemingly null
Take back the corners avoided at night
Remember that beauty can be worth the fight
Pools so pitch they reflect the moon
In tune with surroundings you wish you knew
From hours in the day with brightness cast
Dread diminished to forgotten past
Bring forward that time when all is still
Walking from shadows to darkness at will
If nothing stirs and the dark remains quiet
In the morning hours I find the peace I require
