Life cuts

When life cuts too deep
And leaves you bleeding,
When the sun on the horizon
Is no longer burning.
When all your dreams
Have lost their meaning,
You look into the darkness
For some kind of healing.
When the tide stops turning
You don’t look for the moon,
When you wake in the morning
You hope it’ll be over soon.
So you close your eyes
And hope you don’t wake,
But even in your dreams
Your heart still aches.
You put on a smile
Even when you feel rotten,
So nobody will witness
When you’ve hit rock bottom.

    Moonlight, said the old occultists, reveals what the sunlight hides. Darkness reveals what the bright light conceals.

    Who knows what strength you will find in the dark?
