A DARK PLACE

There is a dark place It's in the back of my mind Sometimes I will summon it Other times, me...it will find This place holds the pain And the suffering too It holds all the scars From the things I've been through It's dark and it's scary You'd not choose it to be A destination to visit These are not things you'd want to see There is good about this dark place And the sickness it holds It is now held in containment I decide when it's told Now I call the shots In beckoning these flashes I use them it heal Until I turn them to ashes 3/2021

Wonderful way to show your self control. "There is good about this dark place And the sickness it holds It is now held in containment I decide when it's told" It is good to take back our power from emotions.
