I sit in the darkness
It is all around me
Closing in on me
Squeezing the life out me.
It wants me to tell
It wants me to tell it my secrets.
I reach out my hand into the darkness
Reaching out into the darkness for help
But no contact is made.
I scream with all my might.
No sound at all.
The darkness has its hold on me.
There is no escaping
No escape it the void.
I start to fade in the darkness
I am the darkness
The darkness is me.
