In the blinding darkness
The silence is deafening
The bitter cold
Leaves the body numb

In the dark night of the soul
Walking a path of solitude
To my loneliness
I unwillingly succumb

Inaccurately perceived by those around me
I am left blind; they too cannot see

My words misunderstood as parts not their sum
I am now speechless; they are dumb

A sense of Deja Vu
I have been here before
Met your soul with the sole purpose
Of gaining wisdom

With catharsis comes exhaustion
An empty vessel of a soul
But a feeling of ultimate preparation
For whatever may come
