unkind, why, fate

Yearning for my dark lover

Darkness coming
I would hunch my shoulders
But tonight
I feel the urge to open my arms
And welcome the dark lover

How would it feel?
To wrap my arms around
Something that hides away
From all light
But loves the color of my hair
Because it is of the light
Though my soul is tinged with darkness

Oh, lover, for to hold you
But I cannot
It is not time yet
I still need to learn
To grow in the ways of my life
Before I can take up yours
