An Open Letter to Darkness

Dear Darkness

You are trapped inside of me

And I am sorry.

I do not know how it happened.


Were you conceived of break-up?



Backs bent over rocks?

Or did I eat you in the womb





Dear Darkness

Please stop scratching at my insides

Tugging at my arteries

Clawing at my ovaries,

I do not know if you want me

To love you

Or let you go,

And I do not know if I am capable of either
