The Darkness

I can feel it watching me It’s hunger seeks devouring Seeping through the cracks between Things which are, but can’t be seen Planting of the doubting seed It’s power to twist everything To it’s own reality In the darkness it will feed On every fear that’s haunting me But I find hope now in it’s greed The truth will wake me from the dream

Wow, this is very cool. The darkness can definitely be a barrier to our dreams but once we open our eyes, hope is endless. Nicely done.

Great write, everything appears much worse in the darkness and you have captured those feelings well.
