Darkness Is A Friend

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