In The Dark

In the dark

I feel the veil of lonliness creep up

Like an ever-distant shadow,

Just waiting for the sun to set.

 

In the dark

I feel afraid.

I am vulnerable to the feelings inside that

Boil up and threaten

To take over my very being.

My body

My mind.

 

In the dark I feel helpless.

Blood rushing to my head as if I am

Upside down.

The tears fall on my pillow

As I lay

Down on my bed.

 

In the dark

I am raw

From emotions deep within.

 

In the dark

I am scared,

Of letting that evil win.
