Dark Star

Life is cast in light and shadows
Some days, the darkness devours me whole
Wraps around my mind, body and soul
Dragging me down to the unknown
Down, Down, Down…
A bottomless pit, an endless void
Smothering every sliver of light
Shadows dissipate until darkness is all that exists
My psyche clawing, demanding to find the lone ember
The ember of light in this vault of nothing
Kindling in the distance, embracing the faded flame
The burn of a torch spearing through my cold frame
A beacon, beckoning me
Igniting the entity that illuminates inside 
Tugging me back to the ether
An exhausting game of tug and war
A lonely battle for a dark star

- A. Stuebbe
