In the darkness I am alone
My fear engulfs me, and at times strangles me.
The dark petrifies me, but it is also my sanctuary.
In the darkness there is no judgment
There is no color
In the darkness I am free
There is no need for makeup
In the darkness we touch and combine
no one can pull us apart, no one can watch.
In the darkness we can exist the way we want to
we can be who we want to be.
We can be who we should be
The darkness is my sanctuary.
Void of all pain, of all life
the darkness is strange and yet comforting
Only if I embrace it.
I must let go of the fear, relish in the sanctuary
be free in the dark.
