Leaking Light

Desiring Darkness

I need more.
I'm hungry for a story that the past can't bring me.
I realize now how sheltered I was.

Simple plots, quick resolutions, mere minutes long.
It's not enough anymore, it no longer fits who I am.
I've changed.

I need intense ideas, something to make me feel.
Maybe even something that can make me cry.
Anything to release the pent up emotion behind the blandness that's consumed me.

I need darkness.
And after I get it and soak it in for a while,
Maybe the light won't burn so much.

    Good write. That darkness will suffocate you where the light will show you the way.
