Dark Corner


Dark long hallway

A streak of light breaks through the ceiling

At the other end darkness

I look deep into the darkness

I can’t make out anything out

Nothing but black

Emptiness lies in the darkness

The light can’t reach

I inch closer

Not to the light

But to the darkness

In the emptiness, something calls

I feel it pulling me closer

Something lives in those shadows

I want to find out what

I’m drawn to the unknown

Curious maybe

Not fearless

The hairs on my back stand

I walk closer past the light into the darkness

I feel at home in the darkness

It welcomes me

It suits me

It even knows my name
