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”
