The dark is confusing
Yet something about it always intrigues me.
It’s how it makes you feel like anything can happen –
how one swift motion of your eyelids can take you to a dreamland
and you can be the fairy princess that you’ve waited all your life to be
or find the guy of your dreams and fall madly in love.
And start a family
and die old and grey, warm in your bed
and you can hide from it all.
But it’s dark
and it’s quiet
and it’s lonely.
And sometimes, late at night
it can be a nightmare.
The ghouls and ghosts twisting around in your mind
plotting evil and planning mischief
making you worry for your health
and your family
and … everything.
They makes you worry about everything.
It can bring sadness
sadness that feels like it’s last forever
like it’s longer than the 365 days allowed in a year.
But that’s not all it is
it doesn’t last forever.
It’s a part of your life, ONE part of your life –
the life full of chapters,
and a future.
One that you can write –
each day is another page
and that book doesn’t have to end until you say it does
until you’re write the epilogue and you’re winding it down.
Not until you cross the last “t”
and dot the last “I”.
Until you close the last page ,
you can keep going –
and if you go far enough,
you reach the resolution
the part that everyone waits for.
Where you can look in the mirror and smile.
Where the cool wind on your skin gives you goosebumps
and your heart is beating out of your chest
and your eyes are watering
and you’re happy
but this time it’s not a dream
you don’t have to worry that you’re gonna wake up in a few hours and forget it all
it’s real life
the one with chapters and sequels and a future
the one you made for yourself.
if you’re lucky
you’ll see light
after what feels like a lifetime of darkness.
How’d you guys find this?
I’ve been writing this for a little while now and I think it’s finally how I want it to be.
I’ve got a speaking exam for English coming up soon so what do you think? Can I use this?
I’d try to explain my thought process but honestly – I haven’t got 500 years.
Lemme know if you like it
