I’m afraid of the dark

I heard that’s where monsters sleep
I heard that’s where the devils creeps
I heard it watches you
I heard it can make your deepest fears come true
I heard the dark is bad
I heard it drives people mad
I heard insanity has a close affinity to it
I heard shadows and beauty dont fit
I heard anyone you meet in the dark is dangerous
I heard that darkness sleeps in all of us
But I’ve never seen it
I’ve never experienced it
All hear say, rumors and mere gossip
Pardon my french but its bullshit
The dark is beauty undefined
Darkness is a everything left behind
Pure unadulterated eternity
Limited only by your own creativity
Remember where it all started
But marketing is so cold hearted
Ruined a reputation filled with stars shining bright
Destroyed any hope of it being equal to the light
But I sleep in the dark
I wake up in the dark
My words forever linger in perpetual darkness
Unattainable for tainted fingertips
A friend who is always there
A whisper that will always care
Darkness sleeps in every crevice of my brain
At times the light is nothing but pain
Even if there is nothing but me and darkness
I will be ok
Because we are friends


I’m afraid of the dark is something you would hear children say. But I’m afraid of the dark is something that has been embedded into almost everyone. And of course its because of the fact that people tend to do bad things in the dark. But I’m afraid of the dark is just so much more than simple bad stuff happening. I’m afraid of the dark is something that exceeds the mere night, I’m afraid of the dark is something that sleeps in several places of human society. I’m afraid of the dark is something most people will deny, because of so called standards that have been forced upon them. I’m afraid of the dark is just bad marketing coming together to create something even worse. But I’m afraid of the dark is something that you can fight is you are so inclined. I’m afraid of the dark is something you dont have to teach to your kids. Light isnt always the best place to be.
