A Tree Between

What makes this night so different?
The walls grow thin
The veil is rent
Free passage between worlds

All that we deny applies
And all we fear is fact
A night no different except
That we admit

Admit that there is more
To this than what we know
And know there is no barrier
Beyond what we allow

Admission wins admittance
Tendering the key
To open like a dreaming eye
Awakening from sleep

A world of dark
A world of light
And we stand in between
Rooted in the lightless night
But growing toward the sun
