My home is dark and beautiful

My home is dark and beautiful, as striking as she is fearsome
Her conditions are imposing, but her splendour’s the most winsome

In the little she reveals, there lays much mystery
She is distant from the world, gentle, quiet, and icy

My home is dark and beautiful; her spirit quite bipolar
Piercing out, each day is bright and blissful, quickly coming to a closure

To live in such extremities, she is the most courageous of them all
She is tenacious, daring, fearless, with this she does enthral

My home is dark and beautiful, like a haunting melody
Her darkness calm and heavy, bits of myself in her I see
