I embrace the black
and I swim in this
eternal sea of nothing
In this lovely calm I find

refuge

in being alone, one with my

self

When my eyes are open, and
the light is out
I see nothing more than is necessary
to find

me.

In the darkness
I am devoid of
secular distractions
it helps me to concentrate solely
on what I'm thinking

As I float in the black
I am free to

think
analyze
worry
hope
reconcile

...the darkness is a viscous ether
that lets my anxieties
filter into the outer reaches of my
consciousness...

...in this enveloping void
I am healed by my visions
uncorrupted by the light...

...the dark is my light...


It's healthy, cathartic
to be able to
recognize my anxieties
ponder my worries
grapple with my problems
with no interruptions from outside

in this way
the black allows me
to come to terms with the present
and the past
and the future

the void lets me heal myself

be careful
don't let the dark out
don't disrupt my darkness
