My Light

Jordan Arel, 9/17/2014

That holy light
But known in dreams
That blinding

Opens my eyes
To charred-black chains
Ever binding
Piercing me

Deeper, deeper
Hear my prayer
Careless knife

Instruct me in
This torture cell
Illumine me
In darkest night

Waking nightmare
Endless seems
The choice
Was never mine

Still I grant
This tender heart
Be stabbed
A thousand times

As pain,
It teaches empathy
A hidden
Cause for delight

For darkest curse
Does blessing conceal,
Only then I learn
To use
My Light
