Within Darkness by Stephen Keating

When I was a child 
I feared the darkness
Because I couldn’t see 
With my eyes 
My mind saw 
All manner of scary things
I find solace now 
In the unbound darkness
It’s serene, lenitive 
Like a poultice it heals 
Self-inflicted wounds
There are no walls or fences 
It’s eternal and comforting 
Like I could fall into it forever
Maybe come out 
Somewhere far away 
On the other side of myself
