Dark

We are the dark underbelly
The ying to your yang
Your unfathomable subconscious
Your point of origin

We are the beat that you dance to
The words that you speak
The moral imperative that you run from
The soul that you seek.

You love us, you hate us
Seek to make us gone
A suicide wish
We are your shadow
You die when we do.

So continue
Shoot, imprison, denigrate.

Self-mutilate.

The invisible string
That binds us mean that
When we climb you do too.
But when we
Fall…
