darkness hides the light

Dear everyone, someone, anyone who will listen,

Does the darkness scare you too?

As its cold stare freezes your body;


Its been around so long, I consider it a friend.

But its a friend I dont care to know,

so I sit awake at night thinking of the light.

The light that never shows its face

The light that mocks me in my dreams.

It taunts me, calls me, but keeps its distance.

will it ever take the place of the darkness?

A thought I have often.

But a thought that i know is only fiction.

Does the dakness stalk you too?

please tell me it does.

...everyone?...someone?.. anyone?
