Darkness has a way of imparting secrets. If you're willing to listen.
WHAT I LIKED
I liked how each stanza start with the invitation: "Darkness, what can you tell me?" It brought the discussion back to the center of the circle for the reader to ponder.
Roughly, the ryhme scheme consists of 2 lines rythming with each other, but the lines are consistently inconsistent. The 1st stanza is AA, BBB, CC, DD, EE, FF, the next stanza is different. The rythmes do make the poem more engaging.
I did not spot any spelling/punctuation mistakes.
Some of the themes I identified, or at least spoke to me:
Learning the hard way (you'll remember it better)
Some pain time cannot replace.
There is hope after life, despite the darkness in one's life.
