Signs

Lying awake

counting stars

I’m starting to think there’s darkness in all of us.

Before I thought

we were inherently light

that the darkness is what we avoid

but here in this nothingness

where my only light is stars now falling

I feel it again –

unsure…of what I’ve been told.

Everything has changed.

Suspicions are reborn.

The oracle speaks.

Then the oracle is silent.

And what are we left with?

Fewer stars

and greater darkness,

more from within than without.
