Inviting Darkness

Location

My toes touch the edge,

I look down.

I see the darkness

beneath the ground.

 

I look up,

searching for light.

All I see is darkness

deep in the night.

 

So cold in this place,

I just want to lie down.

I bet it’s warm

beneath the ground.

 

Why can’t I just rest?

Why can’t I be free?

Released from this

tormented agony?
