Dark

Darkness entices you with its tongue
It’s words whisper demonic words
It tries to cloud your mind
It covers you in its dark cloud

You try to push it away
You try to fight back
Scream, cry, kick
But it keeps coming back
It wants more

You know you shouldn’t feel this way
This loneliness and pain keeps eating at you
Why?
Why?

Just go away
Just leave me alone
I don’t want to feel this way
But the monster is growing inside of me

Every day it gets stronger
My power is losing
I don’t want to fight anymore
I don’t want-

Return she whispers
A tiny girl with braids and a pretty dress
She lends out her hand
Her smile breaks me

We walk hand in hand
She hums a melody
She seems familiar
I stare with tears in my eyes

In my room I lay awake
A tiny photograph on my night stand
A girl with braids and a pretty dress
I recall the moment of the picture

To be free like I was as a child
To be happy as I was as a child
To be me

I smile

I let go of the darkness

I think of the little girl

I welcome her back with open arms
