Got a light?

They took away my light.
You said I can't play with fire.
With the flame gone I was angry,
Scared, ashamed that I had come to
Depend on how it made things bright.
Paralyzed, thrashing in darkness;
Convinced I needed that sight.

I never would have seen the sun
If you hadn't taken away my light.

from The Night, Love Lost
P.T. Roll
