When The Lights Went Out

Last night the lights went out
And my house was plunged in darkness
I was left alone with my mind
And its innermost recesses

I battled with my turmoil
Over my losses I cried
I talked sternly to my confidence
That had been taken for a ride

I had a conversation with my conscience
I shared secrets with my pain
I reflected over the sublime memories
That would never visit me again

I made peace with what I couldn’t change
And reveled at things I could
Fought with things that got me down
Buried the things I should

And just as suddenly as they had gone
The lights came back and boom!
The person I had met in the dark
Had sadly left the room.
