black is surrounding comfort
that leaves us alone and safe;
it is night without nuance
and a place in the dark
where one can shelter
away from the burning light,
that carcinogenic beating blaze.
let us alone with the night
to gather with the timid things
that seek the safety of isolation,
wrapped in the harbour of blind obsidian;
black is best as it holds us closer,
this place of merged shadows;
it sings to us of sweet sleep .
