a kernel of truth

There's more darkness than there
will ever be of light
Look at how the stars 
freckle the sky at night

easy to stay outside the circle
of the light around the flame
black shades the space so I don't face
the sorrow in the shame

the universe, a night shadow
dark with distant spots of glow
evening the flow of my nature
I cant see, no more to know

vision always seeks all
that's caste in a ray,
provides knowledge, and so, insight
now seize the day

but the shine is too much 
for the nocturnal
gleaming a little, thus too much
of my truth inside its kernel

so I wait for dusk to settle
calming craze so I can be
the parts of myself I love
covers enough so I feel free

the universe, a night shadow
dark with distant spots of glow
evening the flow of my nature
I can't see, no more to know

put your flashlight down
unless to want to see inside my smile there's a frown

a sadness greater than the day
of a truth that can't handle a light that just might stay
