Is darkness only
Absence of light
Or individual persona
A personal night.

Does it gather at dusk
And retreat at dawn
Or is it a twenty-four hour
Cloud that is drawn
A personal darkness
Personal absence of light?

No amount of sun
Can ease the fright
Of not knowing
If anyone’s home.

Do you see me
Are you entirely alone?
