Warm and welcoming,
Total, solid, soothing and encompassing,
A friend, this darkness

Cradled in her opaque arms,
Nuzzling at her ebony breasts,
Absolute delight in the comfort of her negroid bed,
A mistress, this darkness

Little sounds magically louder,
As I feel the tickle of your invisible fingers,
Echoes bring your steps closer,
To hearts that beat faster,
A bogeyman, this darkness

While the earth turns,
A new resident of the still and quiet,
Above, while the hot sun burns,
Below, cold and moist is diet,
As he lay prone, finally at rest,
With mother, as if he never left, this darkness
