Escaped Raven

The Darkness

I don't know when 

or where

or why

but at some point

the darkness became my only friend

the one who stayed 

when i fell

the one who listened

when i talked

the one who

gave me a place

to be

me

when i thought I didn't belong

everything

everyone

left

even my own shadow

but the darkness

those inner demons

stayed 

they stayed 

even when i didn't want to...

    Darkness and inner peace, they do go together. Fine piece.
