The darkness I pray to be consumed by. That worry free and relieving darkness I long for. The absence it makes me feels when I don't  receive it. The guidence to my desired place I hope for but cannot reach on my own regardless of my efforts too. A place where my body lays untouched and peacefully. My mind free to roam where it desires. My lights completely off leaving me to drown in my own thoughts. A gentle breeze from my fan brushes against my skin. But  I lay with my poor restless eyes awake, relaxed and longing, praying, craving my desired place of a gentle an deep slumber that I have yet to recieve.

    the darkness, is this about suicide?
    maybe you could desire the lightness
