Darkness of night, seductive but shy
Conjures secrets, silently they lie
Sorrows and wounds, clandestine
Some are infamous, some benign.
I want to hold the darkness, layer by layer
It makes you confess, past sins, crystal clear
Getting rid of them, rubbing the dark out of mind
Somewhere, a rose blooms, darkness behind.
Mind opens up when it’s dark
Dearth of light, truth doth lurk
