And so of larger – Darknesses – Those Evenings of the Brain –
Now we’re getting even more figurative.
What’s “larger Darkness”? Could it mean something bigger and more overwhelming than the situations “We” faced earlier?
Whatever it is, it’s definitely something that happens within us: this darkness happens in the “Evenings of the Brain.” It’s all inside our mind.
When not a Moon disclose a sign – Or Star – come out – within –
We are still inside our brains, and it’s dark in there.
It’s so dark that not even the moon is visible.
Or the stars. Geez, we could really use that flashlight about now.
Notice the wordplay in line 12: the stars aren’t coming out in the sky, but rather “within.” We’re still inside our own minds; we’re within ourselves. She’s still using figurative language to talk about emotions.
