Darkness On My Mind


by Tim Young



Darkness is on my mind
the end of time 
or the beginning
I don't know

Sipping wine in the candle light
makes me wish
I was rich
but I don't really care
as long as I find
another bottle

So I bring
Darkness on my mind
shooting out the street lights
sledgehammer the head lights
until I find
the peace in
the Darkness of my mind

And I say
Darkness on my mind
doesn't make me blind
but then I think about
all the words that
rage inside and rhyme
charging madly
into all those spaces
where the light is never
allowed to shine

So I live within
my Darkness
that I dare to believe is mine
flashing inside a candle flame
and one more sip of wine
