Black Light

The light refracted
Through drops of rain on glass
Hurts almost as much
As the realization that this weight
Will always be with me.
It is an unbearable infinite silence
Between the notes
That I both long for
And try my hardest to avoid.

This light.

This darkness.

There is nothing else here for me
Beyond that.
Everything else is a faded dream state;
A pain.
Frozen in me
As a threat;

As a gift.
