The Dark Place

Go to that dark place and embrace it.

I say, go to that dark place and rest your tortured head against the cold certainty that everything changes. All will be lost. No one escapes it.

You will be abandoned, betrayed, lose everything. Life will turn on a dime.

But nature is kind and will conjure a brighter place, a fire to step out of, a reverse immolation.

You will grow your fiery skin back, become smokeless fire like the djinn.

You will love and be loved again.

All will be well.
