Fortunately Numb

“I have stared down the devil and had to look away
Called out to the angels but no one ever came”
~Fortunate Son, Bruce Hornsby

Darkness knows me if I called out to anyone
Of course it would be a devil to come

Why would an angel sink from the skies
When light only reveals my disguise

Darkness becomes darkness in time I know
Its steady hand reaching out to me whenever I’m low

Staring into shadows as if they aren’t there
Shutting eyes to my pain without a care

Darkness takes me in its comfortable embrace
And shows me how light can shine there in its grace
