In That Darkness

In That Darkness

By Mitzi Danielson-Kaslik

I loved him from the first

Moment I saw him,

Though I do not blame

Him for falling for me

When he did.

He wanted me

At the end of autumn,

At the start of winter,

That’s when men

Need lovers to keep them

Warm through the night

And snatch their mind

From the dark and cold.

Which I believe I did well

For a time until the spring

Came and he did not need

To be kept warm anymore

And so we didn’t not speak

Again and I tried not to miss


It was in that same darkness

That I found you, my friend.

I found you in the corner

In a pen and notebook

And in my mind,

My ideas began to flow

And I wrote of good

And of evil and of love

And of hate and I was


I am happy now.

Also, in that darkness

He found her and he,

I believe, is happy now.

He is happy.

I am happy.

We are happy.

But not with each other.
