Treasure Hunt

To reach the heights
we must sink to the depth
of our being
down through channels
deep and dark
spurious, these paths
of our denial

Yet, oh, the treasure found
in darkening shadows
of the night
as starlight takes to flight
and pierces somewhere
deep within
this flesh we thought
so sacrosanct

deep enough to reach
the very center of it all
even as our sense
of solitary unity
just fades away
dissipating in the interplay
of dark and light . . .
