comforted

A light shines in the dark

But sometimes it is hard to find

When words of defeat

Echo on repeat

Peddling the hamster wheel of suffering

Embedded shame

Where it would be better to let go

And reclaim

A sense of joy in life

A little light

Sometimes these harsh winds blow

And as you fight

To stay alive

It gets harder and harder

To find the point

And yet even emptiness

Can bring relief

Your soul.. oh how it longs for sleep

To find the way back beneath the covers

To drown in the kisses of a feverish lover

To float in the nocturnal spaces of dreams and lust

To wake to sunlight at dawn

Or sunset at dusk

Rain or sparks of fairy dust

Scattered round the room

Soothed as you feel the satiation

Of the longing

To be comforted
