Darkness Visible

Darkness Visible
by Charles E S Fairey 

I am a formless unknowable black canvas, of a face 
My veiled form hides the truth of thee, Oh Lord 
All others glue to my form, with magnetic embrace 
Come hither, be mine host, for the souless Lord. 

I am darkness invisible, oblivion itself 
Even the King of Terrors, serves my utter chaos 
I have a face of all and many forms, but not myself 
For I have none, but oblivion’s infinite unknowable darkness. 

If darkness was visible, my form would terrorise 
For to see your Lord, in his truest form 
Your eyes with bleeding darkness, would the devil realise 
For upon my cross you suffer, in my anger, hoof and horn. 

My price you may ask, is evil, it is mine 
For I do not wish you, to suffer the same 
I have chased myself, for magdelenic ethereal time 
Yet still no one, I, the Lion, has been able to tame. 

A thousand features, a thousand forms, infinity 
Darkness Visible, the light a’blazoned, the veil of the unknown 
A thousand sins, a thousand crimes, the law of divinity 
I made my enemies, with hell’s eternal fiery throne. 

But darkness visible, would have it no other way 
For he knows what love is, and is eternity true 
It doesn’t matter if you judge me, or care to pray 
For darkness visible, is all I have ever known, or knew.
