“There are different kinds of darkness,” Rhys said. I kept my eyes shut. “There is the darkness that frightens, the darkness that soothes, the darkness that is restful.” I pictured each. “There is the darkness of lovers, and the darkness of assassins. It becomes what the bearer wishes it to be, needs it to be. It is not wholly bad or good.”

Sarah J. Maas Court of Mist and Fury

Darkness has its place

the absence of light

can prepare one’s soul

to accept the light

of healing

of new life

of rebirth

of love.

Whatever the struggle




that precipitated


of the soul,

embrace it

feel it

live it

explore it

so when pure light shines

the darkness

can fully disappear



new life


and love

can begin
