Day 208 – In The Darkness

Love’s Battle Cry

 

In the darkness

the eyes saw me,

those unblinking stolid

eyes followed my every

movement, peering into

my motivations and

secretly guiding me

to my ultimate resolution

– that destination – where

the light of love went

out and fear took over

bearing the torch of

hatred seeking ever to

bask in the strength of

derisive division.

 

In the darkness

the eyes saw me,

those sordid and weary

eyes burned upon my soul,

worried at what I may

accomplish against their

desires; carrying within my

beating heart an inch of hope

I fumbled forward in the dark

guided by my soul’s thirst

and heart’s desire – to bask

eternally in sacred love, that

union of humanity’s hearts

and souls – to finally find

the source, that hidden light

forged by love but impeded by

experience and pain, and in

taking up this torch I found

that I would be love’s

battle cry through the dark.
