Dear Darkness

Dear Darkness,
Boldly quiet, ageless grace
Still and steady resting space
First born calm eternal place
Did you ever anticipate the downfall of your reign?
The pain
The bane
Your slayer’s dressed in white

Dear Shadow,
Cools and tempers scorching ground
Holds my hand without a sound
Protecting shield sheltering around
Were you worried to be found contender of good?
Of could?
Of should?
Stand faithful to devastation

Dear Midnight,
You’re created just the same
Separated by a name
Shaded black to play his game
Are you grieving since he came just to end your night?
With might
With light
Never mattered who’s at fault
