In the beginning, I barely noticed it was there…
It was a little black dot in the background that appeared when I was sad.
In the beginning, it was small…
But then one day… I don’t know… I guess I was too sad for too long and it grew and grew, and grew, and grew until….
Until it was there all the time peering around every corner, …. Watching me like some stalker.
In the beginning, it wasn’t around much, it was shy…
But now all it does is follow me everywhere I go,..now...it started pounding on my door saying,
“Let me in” in a creepy but calm voice and laugh this laugh that gives me nightmares.
In the beginning, it seemed to be shrinking but now with every day that goes by, …. It eats a part of me to make it stronger, bigger, and it won’t stop till it takes over.
But,... it’s okay, … cuz I let it in… I guess the pounding got too loud and I couldn’t take it anymore … I let it in..
DARKNESS IS A PART OF ME NOW
