Held by Blackness

Held by blackness
like the black curtain on my window holds out the light  
†as I pray to sleep just a little bit longer
 
Held by blackness
††like the night sky shuts out the sun's light allowing us
††to see the small diamonds scattered like glitter

Held by blackness
  like my black clothes cover and hide my shape
  providing a blank canvas to decorate
 
Held by blackness
††like my heavy, black blanket that wraps snuggly around me
††offering comfort and security
 
Held by blackness
††like my black shoes that leave many foot prints through life's path
††wanting to be seen but not seen at the same time
 
Held by blackness
††like the black frames that surround the pictures of my children,
††my most precious of belongings
 
Held by blackness
††like the black bear that sits on my nightstand, reminding me of  
††my Little Mahto (Little Bear) who is now a grown man
 
Held by blackness
††like the deep black eyes of Hanblalah (Little Dreamer) who is a very
††blessed old soul and my wisdom keeper
 
Held by blackness
††like an empty t.v. screen with nothing to say. No words...
††No thoughts....just.......blank.
 
Held by blackness
††like sadness that washes over me and reveals itself in tears
††that run down my cheeks and drip off my chin
 
Held by blackness

This is day 6 of a sadness that I can't even explain. I cry about everything and people's words cut like sharp knifes. There seems to be no end in sight. I know, I'm exhausted from being an "essential" employee, but I think it's more. I know, I am also missing my children more than I can adequately express.
