The Darkness of Pain

I stand in darkness
There is pain
But the pain isn't in me
It is around me
It is the darkness

I reach out and touch nothing
I run, but it is still there
I shout, but there is only silence
I cry, but there are no tears

Stop!
I will do nothing then
I will just be
I am my own light

Then I light the darkness
From my heart
And the pain is healed
