In Darkness
By Marjorie Meeker
From “Songs of Night”

DEEP in the heart of darkness I am lying,
    Alone and still;
And all the winds of darkness and of silence
    Work their will,
Blowing about me through the awful spaces        5
    Of night and death;
Nor all immensity can touch or thrill me
    To thought or breath.
Deep in the heart of darkness I am dreaming,
    Quiet, alone,        10
Careless alike of tender words or cruel—
    Even your own.
