You, darkness, that I come from,
I love you more than all the fires
that fence in the world,
for the fire makes
a circle of light for everyone,
and then no one outside learns of you.
But the dark pulls in everything;
shapes and fires, animals and myself,
how easily it gathers them,
powers and people.
And it is possible a great energy
is moving towards me.
I have faith in nights.
