Today I was reflecting on the durability of difficult states of mind. Pain is real, not make believe. And it can last a long time. I have felt it. But I do believe that there are longer cycles and there will come an end to even the most difficult of states.
When the Dawn Fails to Come It is the longest night That you have ever known It is the long loneliness From the absence of your beloved It has been so long That even your tears have deserted you And all that remains is dull ache But even as you write You sense the presence of a larger cycle Not only are there days and nights There are seasons And something within tells you There will come an end even To this polar night.
