There is an evil,
Like a dark pungent mist,
Consuming the innocent.
Unseen principalities of darkness,
A wicked one who prowls,
Seeking those he may devour.
Feeding upon our fears,
Clawing at our hopes,
Drowning our dreams with tears.
Demons doing the bidding,
Of satan himself,
From deep within the spiritual realm.
Vampires, werewolves and goblins
Differ from this scary.
Know thine enemy…
Darkness, your puppeteer,
Dominating the gray.
Drifting far from your light,
Yet still connected to the day.
Captured in lusts’ web,
Every sense heightened with anticipation,
The same web which binds you,
Connects the pieces of your whole.
When the sun penetrates the shrouded barrier,
Which part of you wins the war?
Soul in peril,
Running from safety.
Into the tangible arms of temptation,
Painting unbridled passion ornately.
Perhaps enough rain will fall,
To wash you free from the snare.
Before you’re enveloped by silken threads,
And digested by the dark affair…

Peer into the dark
With your piercing solar stare
Cancel by merging
Yet the darkness is still there
Joined in harmonious union
Separate yet betrothed
The darkness seeks to extinguish the light
The light fights the darkness’ stronghold
Flickering glow, circular ceiling projection,
Light piercing the darkened room.
Soft flames filled with warmth,
Dancing with the music’s melodic tune.
Enhancing the moment,
Absorbing emotions to purify.
Negativity, and fear subjected to fire,
Pain burned to indemnify.
A trinity of light to anchor,
Honoring The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Accompanying me in the moment I know,
True light and warmth, ever present…
Dwelling among the grayness,
Which had become sufficient light for me,
I simply forgot to expect the sun’s return.
Then suddenly, with a bright nudge,
A radiant heat upon my skin.
I’m reminded, for light, to yearn…
The e sun first breaks through
A dreary, cloud-filled sky
And finds its way to my face
That first unobstructed glow
The warmth enhanced by its absence
Is a gentle kiss of God’s love and grace
Then the clouds re–blanket
Softly settling back to their places
The sun continues to burn them away
Peeking in and out of small progress
Atmospheric denseness drowning
Asserting illuminations’ reign
How could I get comfy with the gray?
Why was I surprised by the sun’s rays?
Maybe “why”, isn’t important.
My heart is filled with appreciation.
Right now is a new now.
And back to the moment I’ve been transported!
Shadows cast are in constant flux,
Light and dark coexist in motion.
The sun’s varying intensities,
Are accompanied by shade’s cool devotion.
From dawn’s arrival to dusk’s departure,
And all ephemeral moments between.
Are the unknowns of one’s existence,
Set faithfully adrift upon life’s journey.
Sheltered by the newness of dawn,
While dark’s offering its farewells.
Is a ray of hope, born from light,
Upon the cusp of love fulfilled.
It stretches far beyond the seen,
Reaching the depths of the unknown.
Illuminating dark places,
Showing the lost the way back home.
The ray of hope will never fade,
Although rain and fog may settle.
For hope’s born and sustained by God,
Ruler of the transcendental.
