Maybe they can’t see it That darkness in you 

That takes hold of you as the sun is setting 

That gives life to your demons 

That tries so hard to dim your flame 

Maybe if they could 

That darkness inside you 

The one that swallows you whole every night 

Would have a reason to be afraid 

Now someone else would know 

Someone else could fight

Fight with you, side by side 

Maybe then the darkness would quiver every night, instead of you

Maybe then it wouldn’t swallow you whole…
-B. 8-8-17
