Goodbye Darkness

Author : Brikene Bunjaku

On liquid silver I glide while the winds and waves move me from side to side. My exhausted body finding comfort, my waning soul starting to rumble. The sunshine warming my face gives me a respite from the thoughts that keep me awake. The biting air so crisp and refreshing, reminds me of my forgotten earthly presence.

The soft green grass nurtures my eyes that have been closed to block so many painful sights. It appears that I have kept them shut for so long, I have the feeling that so many things are so long gone. It takes training to gain back the sight, suddenly having to put up with so much bright light. I want to shut my lids them and blind myself again, retreat in the familiar comfort of darkness that bears so much pain. But the pain is there and I just can’t see it; the darkness may hide it, but my soul can feel it.

So I open my eyes and memories flood in, I long to see the world vibrating around me no longer just a gaping bright hole blinding me. I float on the silver, feel its balmy texture gliding through my body giving me strength to keep my eyes open, giving me power to allow the light inside. It says; “Bring your pain to the surface and let the bright light shine on it. Leave the darkness behind, let’s flood it with loving light.”

The pain is still there and it will take some time to heal it, but the darkness has receded and after so long it is no longer needed. At least now I can see the shape the pain has, I can touch it and feel it, and I know what I’m dealing with and how to release it.

I don’t forsake darkness for holding on to me for so long, for it has nurtured my soul when the world was too bright, and I held on to it just as hard. It is time for me to thank it for keeping me safe for so long, but it is time for us to part ways and see each other again when times are tough.
