Dark

 

I know hate. 

We’ve conversed. 

I’ve been. 

I know my hate 

Is deeper than most. 

And I’ve grown 

To resent it. 

I knew too late 

That my hate 

Was one of a kind. 

I knew it would

Draw attention, 

And I’ve drawn 

Attention to myself. 

Knowing my 

Own capacity 

For malice. 

Knowing its well 

Was deeper 

Than I remember 

Digging it. 

Knowing my 

Capacity 

To see in the dark

Was too easy. 

That it came 

too natural. 

That I was meant 

To struggle

In finding light. 

So who am I?

If not a child 

of the night? 

Only a liar

Hoping,

He was a part 

Of the truth.

Occasionally

I know depths and accepted when on my own at eleven joy was an apex connected by a predominance of nadirs. Hate occasionally flared, more love and faith though sustained, protected, and bouyed me to now. May you love courageously.

Hate is easy

love is where

sweat resides.
