I belong

I live in a bright world

where everything is bright 


it's so bright that it hurts my eyes.

I want to live in darkness

where the light will never reach me.

Yet I am scared of the dark creatures 

that can swallow me whole.

I belong neither in the light nor the dark.

I belong no where.

Where is my place on earth 

where I will be peaceful and free from worry?

A place where I can live in a blissful peace?

I guess it's nowhere.

If it did exist, it wouldn't be earth.

And I wouldn't be 

breathing anymore.
