Love Is Black

Drew Hurley

In the darkness
Of that reservoir
Of pain
I call my heart,
Is dipped
The caressing fingers
Of my memories.
Memories of love,
Memories of darkness.
Through the tear
Clouded windows
Of my soul,
I glimpse
The sweet longingness
Of life,
And feel
The blissful heartache
Of hope,
And know
The beautify sorrow
Of love.

In the darkness
I was born.
A child,
Born to night,
And to night
Condemned to live;
To night
Destined to die.
I live my life
In darkness,
But I will not despair.
As some men live
In day
To reason with their mind
And create their work;
I live at night,
To understand not
The reason for a work,
But to love
The longing
Of a sparrow’s soul.

In the darkness
Of night
I reach forth
My hand
And it disappears
Into blackness.
Spreading wide
Their fingers
Of sight,
My grasp
Found your hand
Lifting the burden
From my troubled mind,
And I knew
That you were love,
And felt
The caress
Of your tender
Thoughts.

.

4.

In the darkness
We share
Our hearts,
And dream
Of you and I.
Man and woman
Standing here
Beneath
The gaze
Of the noon sun,
Yet disappear from sight,
Like two shadows
Of the night.
hand in hand
We trod;
Through the darkness
Of the universe;
Two souls
In unison,
Two voices blend
To make one sound:
One song
Of Love.

.

5.

In the darkness
I worship
The beauty
Of your perfect
Blackness.
I feel the smoothness
Of your tender skin,
The depth
Of your sightless eyes,
And the life
Within your vibrant soul.
I worship
Your perfection,
And make of myself,
A servant
To your need,
And create for you
All that I
Can ever be.
When all
Is done,
And I am,
What I am,
Your smile
Becomes a kiss
As my name
Is formed
Upon your lips.

.

.

6.

In the darkness
I do dwell,
Where you and I
Will love eternally,
And dream the love
To live that dream.
In the darkness
All men are known
By how they love
Their dreams.
He who is loved
Must dream
Most pure,
And he who is dreamed of
Must love
Most true.
In the darkness
Love is black.
