Some darkness comes by nature
Some by choice.
My darkness keeps me solitary, my lips seal in response
Darkness proves there’s lightness and offers a place of growth.
When my darkness lifts, and all the stars align,
My drug of choice propels me
Into other people’s lives
More reclusive actions pull me in
Those that stay secret
For me alone to know.
I must avoid the link between
Two souls and what would to be my noose
Were I to act upon the senses
Pelting me with want.
I pour myself into my soul
Lest it let loose in someone else’s lair.
