What is Dark?

is it the color we see when the lights go out?

or is it just a different spectrum of light?

is it associated with the trepidation

of the boogeyman gaining lethal power at night?

 

why are people intimidated by dark hues?

ignoring their function in everyday news

but they love utilizing coal,

fuel their cars with oil

and wear onyx to embellish jewelry

 

spar to retain the strength of obsidian might!

we bypass the pupil’s blackness that permits sight

but raise hell

when our eyes are not working right

 

a raven swoops down to the dusty, ground floor

chirping in a dismal tone, “use me no more

pour out a forty ounce on a freshly painted ebon street

it matters not… how much you drink

the sun bakes fresh concrete

like the chocolate chips in decadent cookies

 

what is dark?

is it the color we see when the lights go out?

or is it just a different spectrum of light?

is it associated with the trepidation

of the boogeyman gaining lethal power at night?

 

the mind fully charges in the twilight

when the predators hunt

and sleep is embraced by the prey

when the shadows chase bodies at play

 

ascending owls colliding with bats and a talking wind

not heard during the day

blackness implanted into a world

growing as complex as the milky way

 

 

Thanks for reading! Love always, Esha ❤
