You are commonly viewed with fright

And thought to extinguish all remaining light

You lurk in the depths of consciousness 

Causing people to think more and live less

But who’s to say your embrace brings only void 

And an end to all things that were once enjoyed 

Perhaps despite the clouds that shroud you 

You paint the sky in a delicate blue and white hue 

To me, your daunting task brings opportunity 

You allow us to reach an unattainable kind of unity 

You repair lives, and hearts, and other broken things

You offer release from the puppeteers who pull my strings
