I Know The Darkness

We go there when we are tired of running

even when

all

of the signs say turn back

walk,  crawl, drag yourself

away from here

as fast as you can.

We close our eyes and fly into the familiar

hungry darkness .

Without hesitation.

You know where the bodies are buried

nothing can surprise you

nothing will haunt you

not here.

Not in the familiar darkness.

Base is where we find ourselves

when we dig down

hit the bottom

and find ourselves

wrapped in the arms of the  familiar and hungry darkness

standing with relief

in our graves.

 

DAILY POST ONE WORD PROMPT: BASE
