Ode to Darkness
Terrifying yet beautiful,
a color that’s always neutral.
Not a color, but the absence of light.
Nothing has a more peaceful sight.
Deep delightful darkness descends.
Your presence never offends.
You mainly show at night,
to make everything alright
Misunderstood, unknown, feared.
All my worries have disappeared.
You are nothing.
You are everything.
Everlasting, enveloping, elegance.
Complete eloquent silence.
As marvelous as the moon.
As entertaining as a cartoon.
Darkness never fails.
