Darkness is beautiful
When you can see the spark
Of a tiny, little light
Dancing through the shadows

Darkness is terrible
When the light seems far away
Much too far away to reach
Midnight is closing in

Fear will choke down our resolve
Like a serpent maw grown wide
Her tail inching ever near
We’re consuming our own fears

Surrendering our days of bliss
Precious moments in the sun
One life, one chance to live
That’s all we ever have

“And by strange alchemy of brain
Our pleasures always turn to pain
Being young and dipped in folly
We fall in love with melancholy.” (E.A.Poe)

We are the snake
We are the serpent
We are eating our own tail
And the circle grows ever smaller
And the noose grows ever tighter
We are slowly choking on our own fear


from A Child's Bestiary, released August 26, 2016
