The Dark Union

The darkness persisted, staying after i lifted my lids.
I heard time ticking but did not care to know
embracing the darkness as it held me,nou mutual acceptance
daytime daytime hours or midnightht moment, it mattered not.
The eternal counting of time in ticks, our song
we laid together, darkness and me, hoping it would never end
knowing that when light light creeps through curtain cracks
we could maintain our beautiful union, and shut out ther light
and let the day tick past as shut eyes repel the life.
