and maybe i need them both

i know i need them both, actually

i’m just afraid no one would understand

i was birthed from darkness

there are holes throughout my body that house darkness due to the unspeakable acts done in the light

there are scars that sit on my skin

that scream when i step into the sun

how is it that light is the only place where i can be seen

yet that same light blinds the eyes and deafens the ears to the screams of my shadows

they tried to convince me that the light is where i was meant to be

and it wasn’t until that very moment that i knew i’d never be completely whole without the darkness…

the light is still shining
and as I focused on whether or not
the door was still open
I wondered why I was so hesitant to smile
why hadn’t I thrown myself into the light by now
I wanted to-more than anything really
but does anyone truly escape the darkness
i’ve never known darkness to lose its grip
however when I sit on the brink of happiness i feel it pulling me back
only to remind me of who is really in charge
so I smile but with caution
I laugh but not too loud
i’ve housed darkness for so long
it’s become the unwanted houseguest
I can’t get rid of
and every time I go to step towards the sun
it whispers- β€œwhat’s done in the dark always comes to the light”
…

And when a bit of sun creeps

through and shines it’s smile

on the darkness that’s

embedded itself in all the cracks-

you forget that you

left the door open in the first place

or maybe you didn’t forget at all

maybe..just maybe your hands

did what your mouth couldn’t brave.

The places your mouth wouldn’t travel

your hands freely explored.

Here’s to leaving the door open

because the light feels good

Even when the house begs to be dark

You find your way through

When the walls scream for solace and silence

In those moments you demand to be seen

Your reflection shows me who you really are

You light up the parts of me that hesitate to glow in the dark

My walls begged for darkness but still you set them on fire

I’ve never been more grateful to see the sun break the rules

I walked away singing softly…

You are my sunshine 
My only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are gray
