Darkness Is A Friend


The lights go out
They come back on
I check my surroundings
Safe
Lights off
*creak*
Lights on
Scared
I look around
Rooms clear
Lights off
*thump*
*thump*
*thump*
Lights on
Fearful
I cry
Tears envelop my face
My woes echo throughout an empty home
I am alone
Alone
Nothing to worry about
I calm
Lights out
*thump*
Lights on
Empty
Lights off
*thump*
Lights on
*thump*
I jump
*thump*
A new leak springs in my face
*thump*
Cold fingers on my forehead
Wiping my tears
“Hello”
A timid voice
“I’m a friend you see
No need to be afraid of me”
Eyes open
Shaking
I stare
There isn’t even a face there
The voice gone
All that’s left is fingerprints
Fear
It subsides
Lights off
Darkness
There is no need to flee
Darkness is a friend to me
