I am no longer afraid of the dark because it embraces me, lets me do what I want to do without judging me and doesn’t look at me with pity in it’s eyes when I break down and cry because I cannot handle life by myself.

Sad songs
Make me feel things, things that I don’t let myself feel when I need to feel them- the intensity lacking in my life is filled by these sad songs.

Tell tales of life beyond what I see, beyond who I am, and let me in. They let me sit with them because, just because.

My only form of expressing myself. See, there’s a disconnect between my brain and my mouth, so I have to write. I write so the things I feel don’t consume me.
