Disease in the Dark

I close my eyes in the Light to see the Dark.
I close my eyes in the Dark to see the Light.
Lightning forces open my eyelids—
A brilliant jolt that slaps me with sudden lucidity—
But my addiction to the puzzling peril remains.
Afraid of the show, but eager for it to return,
As if the symptom of some addicting disease,
I close my eyes to return to the Light.
