To Hell and Back.

Dsc02480by Michelle Seyner16 Sep 2019

I descend deeply inside my hell
but this time, I'm more prepared,
ahhh, I know every brick so well
and feel more curious than scared

because darkness contains so much more
than things that go bump in the night;
it is an entirely different shore -
when seen in its proper light.

I am not lost, I am not gone
while this dark dilutes to grey,
I am neither frightened nor alone,
for next to me walks Hecate.

Salvation always waited here
(as if it's always been arranged)
every step has brought me near:
I'll be back - and I'll be changed.
