The Day the Lights Went Out

My world was encompassed by light;

Blinding light, I’d say.

So much that I had to shield my eyes

And hope for it to go away.

The evening would be the same,

The night would be the same.

Blinding light, sickening light;

I lost my sleep.

And then came the day the lights

Went out–

So much I hid in fear.

The shadows crawled up my skin

And took me captive.

I couldn’t wish for it to leave;

Oh, the sky was so ruthless

That it pressed down on my head

So hard that I wished I was dead.

That was the day the lights went out,

A horrid yet blissful day

When my emptiness became pain

And again I felt sane.
