the dark is more of a hand grenade 
than a lightning rod,
and my eyes are halfway shut,
but i'm almost certain that was a flicker 
of l'appel du vide
and maybe that's not such a bad thing,
after all.

the antithesis of nubivagence
is just a step away,
and introspection makes the corners
that much darker,
but that's not the problem,
not really.

sciamachy in a puddle of ink;
my, how the circles widen.
somebody needs to tell me to shut the hell up and quit writing this shit.

actually, umm, you're there. the dark is where exploration and understanding begins. I will give you a light, for the real world: you may suffer what is called "Seasonal Affective Disorder", or SAD.

At the same time, I understand your confusion about where this comes from. Existentialism, as it relates to the purpose of language, is what will show you the way in your poem.

Thank you for sharing; most sincerely. I really like it.
