Waking Into Darkness

When you wake from the dream
into darkness
you need only find the lamp, flip a switch,
so what do you do
when you wake
with the dark all inside you?

If the dark is only weakness,
something to fight by thinking alone,
why is it there waiting,
before daylight,
before consciousness?

Something to fight,
before I can even be ready;
something
that gets me
thinking:
alone.
