Dancing in the dark


Deep down where all the lights are out
There’s only one way left
Straight through all the darkness
Where all our fears are kept

With my arms and heart open
I let myself fall
Embracing the shadows
For they are all a part of my soul

And in the dim I will dance
With each and everyone
No matter how dark the melody
Giving in to all of their songs

I let them teach me
Their screams pierce through my ears
But the closer I let them
The more I let go of my fears

At the end of our soul straining sways
After they pushed me all around
I find myself lying dizzy
On reality’s solid ground

There’s a delicate silence
After this dark, desperate fight
I pull myself together
And start walking firmly towards the light
