All this time
I've toed the line
'twixt dark and light
and held the night
to be a place
of barren space
knowing not
that though my thoughts
were dark and dense
and couldn't sense
the starlit calm
it held a balm
as thick as light
though aught was bright
in all the caves
where I have laid
pressed upon
and far from dawn
all the land
of salt and sand
deserts vast
I've ambled past
dried-out bones
and pillow stones
yet in the dark
a gentle spark
the one who waits
I always knew
I ran from You
but did not rate
a size so great
that though I ran
toward any land

I'd always run to You
