When Darkness Replaces the Light

Darkness controls my mind,
Weaves its spiny tendrils through my already
Shattered heart.
Blood drips from the thorns pressing into my sides,
Yet oddly, it doesn't hurt.
The darkness,
Crushing me from the inside out,
Feels good, long-awaited release,
Icy enough to soothe my burning soul.
The light fades from within,
Replaced by the malevolent caliginosity of the outside,
But I don't mind.
I drown inside my mind, my thoughts
Vise-like, choking, strangling.
And as the night fades away, I remain intact,
The only thing of that time remaining.
And I finally feel like I belong.
