In the Dark


When in the dark,

there is no light.

When in the dark,

there is no sight.

I am as happy as can be when in the dark, 

but when the lights come on, happiness is no longer free.

I walk outside into the streets,

thinking that everyone is staring at me. 

So this inspires me to go to the gym, then to go to the bathroom and bring up my burdens again.

I am trying to fly as lightly as possible, 

but my load is heavy and I can no longer carry it.

I strongly believe i can never be too small,

I must be the skinniest,

the skinniest of them all.

So bye, bye to you and

goodbye to light.

My life has disappeared, 

in the dark.
