Light and Dark

They tell you that there is light
At the end of the tunnel
But what if at the end
You find only
Solely darkness
The sort that absorbs
Sucks out life
And devours
Consuming your existence
Depositing the bones
Of your soul
In inky black
Without hope
For ever
Like a knife in the back
Betraying you
What if there is nothing
That gleaming light was
A lie your mind played
Asking you to believe
While offering only hope
I choose to embrace that hope
For without it
I will only have the inky black nothing
