The Darkness

Published January 15, 2015 by Naomi Rettig

In the darkness I see softness,
A softness that envelopes me in comfort
And suffocates me.
In the darkness I hear silent voices,
They are not welcome
Yet they won’t fade away.
In the darkness I taste my tears.
In the darkness I reach out
But no one is there,
Just the emptiness that taunts me
Again and again.
