I am afraid of darkness.
It makes me blind.
I have lights in my room
which allow me to walk freely
about my chosen paths.
Yet, there is a residue of fear
which I feel during those walks.
I am a scared insomniac
who doesn’t know how to face darkness.
As soon as the lids close
I tremble inspite of calming down.
My darkness was never the absence of light
but absence of courage.
Wonder about the blind.
Tonight, I shall try to turn the lights off.
