Come with me into the darknessby Ingrid Goff-Maidoff
Come with me into the darkness
where I'm not pressed to be beautiful.
Where the watched go unwitnessed, unguarded,
and deep speaks to deep in a wordless tongue.
Let me take off this outrageous costume
I bought for approval and fantasy
and go with you into the darkness
wearing only my love.
