I have told a lie,
a tale so white it blurred truth.
bring me darkness, I crave it.
leave me be,
let it wrap me in familiar bands,
I have made allies with its silence, learnt to work its curves.
let me walk the streets of murk, just for a moment,
I need to see clearer.
how can dawn come if dusk hovers not?
leave me in gloomy pools,
I have swarm long enough to learn to float.
