so true ... a long, dark, and yes, unforgiving darkness. it will hold us and keep us until we learn what we need to learn, do what we need to do. and the light that follows, if we persevere, is incredibly beautiful. our song is finally our own.
Bruja by Segovia Amil. The darkness in a woman is such that, stripped of our sight, we must feel our way through it- we crawl, we enter her circle of hell until we sympathize with her sorrow, until we learn from her rage.
