I was raised in Darkness

So Darkness I became

You wanted to leave me in a world of Darkness

So now I belong only to the world of Darkness

I hope you’re happy

Because I finally am.

Cross my heart and hope to die,

Darkness is my master and my home

Because I’ve never had another

And I know comforts in Darkness.

And as for the man, my partner as I think of him

He saw Beauty in my Darkness

I saw Darkness in his Beauty

We belong together.

Which leaves me in a good place, you realize.

The only thing left is you.

You aren’t my mama, Darkness is my mama.

But you abandoned me. Big mistake.

We have unfinished business, you realize.

And I so hate loose ends.

But wasn’t that how you saw me?

A loose end to tie up?

A piece of evidence to destroy?

Don’t ever try to touch me,

Don’t even think about trying to get inside my head

It’s much too dark for you in there.

I’m not a baby anymore,

I’m a beast full of Beauty and armed with Darkness.

I write poetry, prose, and personal pieces. All images are mine unless indicated otherwise. Feel free to leave feedback on my work anytime; I hope you enjoy.
