Recovering The SelfA Journal of Hope and Healing


Out of Darkness

by Ryan Monaco

Out of Darkness

My shadows succumb
to the pale purity
her grasp an eclipse
over my demons
reveals a lost clarity
from somewhere within

Back from the void
out of darkness
she came for me
and I will not let go
she sings my heart
in beautiful melody

My cold corpse
little but a shell
she stands over me
my spirit in herself
I sank into her eyes
my body no longer still
carving a path
unto her embrace

Longing for her grows
in every moment
yet we are as one
desire and soul
this broken hope
has become whole
