Short & Dark

Nyctophilia


What is this light that follows me?

It was not invited; it invades my space.

It tries to lure me out of my comfort, that deep dark place.

This light brings hope when all I want is despair.

Why does it follow me? It does not belong here.

What I want, what I long for, what I desire is the night.

This light will not take me, not without a fight.

It is the blackness that seduces and beckons me.

Light be gone, perfect darkness is all I can see.
