Darkness.

I’m happy, and yet there’s a deeper darker side of me that’s wounded and miserable.

I wear my smile on like an apology, because a part of me feels like I shouldn’t be this happy.

Like I don’t deserve it. 

There’s a certain kind of darkness one must overcome alone. 

We all have demons we try to ward off at night when the lights are off.

You were a mystery I wanted to uncover.

I liked you more when you were merely a concept- a stranger.

I do not have time for things that hold no substance.

I’m sorry. I was supposed to be a safe harbour for you. But I have storms of my own, too.

There’s a certain kind of darkness one must overcome alone. 

We all have demons we try to ward off at night when the lights are off.

– Darkness, ‘Unknown’.
