Dark

I feel so much more alive in the dark.

Darkness. It wraps itself around me,
Muffling my senses.

It twists my emotions into infinite strands,
Reaching into my thoughts and letting them unravel.

I immerse myself.
It falls over me
Like a blanket, warm and safe.
It spreads throughout my body,
Letting go of my pain and liberating my fears.

My eyes stay closed as the day begins to rise.
I feel the darkness creep back to the corners,
Forming shadows.
They release my thoughts,
Storing them deep in my mind.

I open my eyes and I'm no longer free.

The End
