Dark in light

walk over a chasm to reach the idyll
dark depths provoking imagination
smooth white pathways leading celebrations
be led up the garden path or downhill

anti gods bring the ink, gods hold the quill
I hear bells ring in alliteration
awaken the demons, spark creation

different perspectives emerge in sync
let me be the bridge, let me be the link
