I go Into The Black

By Marilyn Kortemeier

I go into the Black sometimes because I know the way so well.

At first it is a gentle black.

But it is cold.

It is really never comforting, just famaliar.

Then I go to the deeper black.

It is colder, unforgiving.

Then I go into the deepest black of all.

It is very cold, very unforgiving.

It is the hardest of all.

Then I see reflected, a tiny light.

What is it. I want it.

I reach for it. But my hand is only met by hard cold blackness.

I turn to see, where is It coming from?

It is there, just a tiny little light.

I begin to move towards it.

I’m going back, through the middle black

Back through the light black.

And the light gets bigger.

I come to a dark shade of white.

It’s warmer here.

It is comforting here.

The light is bigger now.

I go to an even lighter shade of white.

It is warmer here, more comforting

There are hands here.

They reach out and help me along my way.

I go to an even brighter light.

It is all comforting here.

And yet, there is a tiny bit of blackness there.

I look at the darkness and decide.

I don’t want to go. I’m happier here.

I stay, it’s superior to the black.
