Apology

If perhaps in sullen days I might slide back

to where I fell, a child, into the dark,

please wait with me as slowly I am brought

 

again into the light. Your love has brought

the truth to bear in silent corners, back-

rooms where thick lies have festered in the dark.

 

Although not whole, I’m neither lost in dark;

I mourn this languid baggage that I’ve brought,

yet every night and morning I come back

 

to see how far from dark I have been brought.
