Corner Dark

Corner dark and dense as bread,
corner, corner, hide my head,
keep my heart abeating,
so I am not dead.

Ghosts and demons
worries, doubts.
Light that I have
been without.
You will never hear me shout
in corner dark and dense.

Yesterday’s concerns that haunted me
and kept me up at night.
You are now behind me, gone;
put out with the light.
Corner dark and dense as bread
do not fail to hide my head.

Succubus and lover’s lust
keep these things away;
you must.
Keep me safe and dark instead,
my corner dark and dense as bread.
