Darkness and Light

I do not fear my darkness;
My nightmares are old, old friends
who dance while the devil plays lullabies
and carves poetry into my soul.
No, I do not fear my darkness.
What I fear is the light
where the sun erases verses
and I reach for my words
in that silence,
so unknown and achingly bright.
Christine Haggerty
