Fringe of Darkness

it is ever present.. creeping in the corners of my mind
slowly, silently, enveloping me
pulling me from the light
we have done this dance before
i have flirted with the darkness
dove into it
used it for my purposes
turned my back on it
but i have always known it is always there
sometimes i just want to stand
and let it come
wrap itself around me
like the comfort of an old blanket
the touch of a lover gone cold
the caustic embrace of an old burned out flame
but still..
it is an embrace..
