The Black Riders and Other Lines | Stephen Crane, 1895

I was in the darkness; 
I could not see my words 
Nor the wishes of my heart. 
Then suddenly there was a great light — 

'Let me into the darkness again.'”

  Stephen Crane, I was in the darkness, 1895
  (The Black Riders and Other Lines)

In the desert 
I saw a creature, naked, bestial, 
Who, squatting upon the ground, 
Held his heart in his hands, 
And ate of it. 
I said: "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter - bitter," he answered; 

"But I like it
Because it is bitter, 
And because it is my heart."

Stephen Crane, In the desert , 1895
