suddenly engulfed by darkness,
cold and thick,
suffocating,totally hopeless
untill, a light blinks on
now the room is flooded with light,
white, hot, and blinding
then as quickly as it comes it is gone
then the darkness creeps back in
the darkness that was waiting
waiting in the hidden corners of the room
snatches me back from the light
i am covered with the darkness
like a cape of black
or the dark blanket that falls over the forest at night
i pull it to me and wrap myself in it
it gives me what i need to fall asleep
comfort, security, and warmth
