Who I am
An Angel of Darkness
I am told one thing is true
But is it?
Is Light the destructor and Darkness the savior?
Or is it paradoxical?
I'm starting to doubt what is true
I was free
For but a second
Then he came, sealing himself
I was only his puppet
I was forced
My brother, my twin
I was his dark reflection
He was my light reflection
Now I am allied with my brother and his friends
They thought the opposite of me: Light is good and Darkness is evil
Now we all know the truth: neither doctrine is right
I feel as though I have a deep but dazzling darkness
Is that possible, or is it paradoxical?
You don't know
Who I am
I doubt even I do
But for now,
I am a deep but dazzling Darkness
Akino: The title is from a Henry Vaughan poem in Madeline L'Engle's A Ring of Endless Light. Please review. If you want another poem, I take requests for all seasons. Just don't ask for romance. I'm better at angst when it comes to poetry.
