turn out the lights
What do you see in the dark? Who do you see in your mind? Where are you?
Darkness can be a lack of light to our sight, but it can be a sense of pain and dread in our lives. It can be a thick, dense feeling of despair. It can be your only friend.
Sometimes it is safer to stay in that warm inkiness of sadness than it is to step into the light and find hope and happiness. Sometimes the dark is more nurturing than the cold bleakness of a world filled with light.
Let me stay in this warmth a little longer.
