A Yinless Yang

January 16, 18 & 19, 2012

Why must the dark be so dark?

I would cut out half of the sun and the moon.

I would sacrifice them for a lighter shade of black.

I would easily accept beige over brilliant white.

I would tolerate less pleasure for an easier grey area.

But I have held the hand of suffering.

I have felt it’s vibrations cut all the way through me.

I have seen the light shrink and pale into almost nothing…

I have cowered in the icy chill the pierces lungs who inhale…

It is sharp and it is cold and it is so dark.

It is what it is.

But I only am what I am.

Yet we are so deeply connected that I would be something else, were it not so.

Someone entirely different.

(I wonder who.)
