I see Death in the darkness.
It sidles up to me and says, “You are depressed.”
It says, “Here, I have sickness.” It says, “Look at your rage.”
And I say, “Yes I see it. There is a seat at my table for you. Please. Sit.”
I call in the Healing Darkness, this darkness velvety deep
and in course I feel an embrace that slips into my secrets,
those spaces where my despair is known by no one but me.
The healing Love says,
“I am with you.
You are known.
I am holding you.”
Tears soft slide, quench soul-thirst, release.
There are glowing beings around me,
they are moving,
glowing as no other could but in a place such as this.
I say, “Sit. Eat with me, Death. There is much to talk about.”
and we gleam, looking far into each other.
A feast awaits us in the deep winter.
