I am scared of the dark!
No, not the kind that goes bump in the night,
but the darkness I have in my heart.
In my mind.
The darkness that wells up inside,
like thunder clouds on a warm, sunny day,
until nothing else is visible,
until it eats up the air in your lungs,
until it blurs the vision of your eyes,
and all goes dark.
I am very scared of that darkness.
I have so many poems I need to go read, but today I won’t have the time. Tomorrow I’ll be better, I promise. In any case this short piece is written for Pooky’s Poems daily Poetry Prompt – Something that scares you.
