I sat alone in the dark no sun, moon, or stars to help me see. I couldn't feel anything. I couldn't be happy, or sad or anything else. All that was left was darkness and pain. Then all of a sudden there you were like a bright light, brighter than the sun and you lit up my world and I could see again and I could feel. Instead of the darkness and pain there was love and warmth. There was happiness and meaning to my life again. I found reason to get up in the morning. Then you were gone and every thing faded, then there was nothing at all, not even the familiar cold and pain that I use to know so well. There was just nothing but numbness, I felt nothing, saw nothing, I even had myself convinced I was nothing but then you returned and I could see and feel again and it lasted, there was no more darkness or pain or numbness just light and happiness. And I fell in love with you and life was good and it had meaning all over again. Now I couldn’t imagine going back into the darkness again.
In the Darkness
