Sweet Darkness . . .

Sweet Darkness

When your eyes are tired
 the world is tired also.
When your vision has gone,
 no part of the world can find you.
Time to go into the dark
 where the night has eyes
 to recognize its own.
There you can be sure
 you are not beyond love.
The dark will be your home
The night will give you a horizon
 further than you can see.
You must learn one thing.
 The world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds
 except the one to which you belong.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet
 confinement of your aloneness
 to learn
anything or anyone
 that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.
Happy summer,
