“Consumed” - by Mandy Nagyhetenyi
Darkness and Light
At the core of my being.
The blackness nourished by every inch of my soul it can ravage.
And it grows
Slowly at first, slyly,
Barely shadowing the surface.
Time elapses and it begins to entangle,
Slithering its way around the Light,
Blackening, blinding, binding my heart
With bitterness, a strong adhesive.
Yet in this hidden trap
My soul remembers
The Brilliance that once illuminated this life.
A small gleam of Light softly peeking through,
Begins to warm the deep roots of bitterness.
And as the Light is magnified, smoke wisps upon the air;
And a flicker begins to break the chain of resentment,
Unraveling this hardened knot,
Creating kindling for
A pure blaze to burn so radiantly
That the darkness is ferociously consumed
By a Fire it never saw coming.
