Sometimes Darkness

Sometimes Darkness
comes creeping
on silent feet
into every corner
and crack
of your life.

Until everything
is covered
in dark jewels
and shining wings.
Smiles with cracks in them
and wild, feral eyes.

These are monsters;
their Love is wild and
their King is wilder still
yet He holds their Hearts
like drops of rain; each one
more precious to Him than gold

Sometimes there is Love
in lonely places, in scarlet eyes
in burning Hearts, in all the things
we fear.  There is Love in
haunted songs, and sometimes
the Darkness is Home.
