Favorite Quote:
"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." ~Oscar Wilde

It surrounds me constantly.
A faithful friend, a bitter enemy.
It protects me from them but I am left vulnerable to it.

At first everything seems perfect.
A safe haven from their fake realities and false light.
It’s so open, so welcoming, but perfection never lasts.

It feeds off of the lost and bleeding,
Myself and those like me.
I try to call out, to find someone in the abyss
But my voice is swallowed by the emptiness,
And I am held in place by anger and fear.

The darkness surrounds me constantly and so I am left alone.
