dVerse Poets – Poetics – St. Lucy, Bringing Light Into Darkness

“I cannot love another soul so dark it eats up others’ light.” Lauren Kate

Of Dark And Light

Light bringer,
you held your own darkness
in a neglected corner of your life
until it weighed you down to earth,
cast out yet newly found,
that ancient double of good and bad
all wrapped in monochrome,
which simply hides those
uncomfortable distinctions;
even so, your young proteges
follow your example,
some say by deceit,
others say by shine,
all the while reminding us
that we are all bearers 
of dark and light.
