The Darkness

This thing that haunts,
isn’t fear,
It isn’t loathing or hatred,
It’s something else,

It surrounds us,
Consumes us,
makes enemies,
And toys with them,

It is most dominant,
During the night,
When the lights,
Are all snuffed out,

That’s what this does,
It shuts out light, life,
Happiness and love,
It is… darkness.
