Sunlight

The darkness creeps in
Swallowed
I long for it to pass
For this pain to go
But
Of course
I have to wait

I curl up
Clinging to myself
Holding it in
Terrified
Of feeling

The sunlight creeps
Closer still
My savior 
From pain

It takes too long
Every second more
I wish it was all over
But it can't
I made you a promise
And even if it kills me
I will keep it

And there is the light
Burning
But it is good pain
I can feel again
No more dulling aches
No more throbbing
Burns

The End
