I had a dream-
Of a bright world,
And a bright smile,
And dreamy eyes.
But that would not be the case today.
Because I ventured away then,
Darker into this place.
Where things deemed scary,
Could not comprehend the word fear.
Where this darkness took me whole,
And ripped at my skin like paper.
Consumed my thoughts and voice.
As I screamed as loud as I could.
