Behind Closed Eyes

as darkness blankets the land
the moon and stars awaken
untold stories shoot across
closed eyelids laden with
rampant thoughts longing to still
in so doing tension drains
opening the mind to truths
hidden in the recesses
of uncharted depths where dreams
take on new meaning and love
love can shine in the darkest
of corners and grow beyond
simple imaginations

Those corners... the recesses where we hide the .. could love become the beacon.. as a matter of fact, it's only in the darkness we can see the light...too much light is as bad as darkness.. it makes us blind.

Love often does find a way to get through even into the darkest corners.....
