Dark

In the dark is where I stay

So all my flaws will fly away

A side of me lost so no one can see

This imperfect side of me

In the dark

In the dark where no star twinkles

No moon shines

No cat prowls

No crickets whine

It's a place where no wind blows

No hearts beat

Where no living soul can live but me

A place where no book is read

No hope is found

No wings are spread

No woes are drowned

It's a place with no feelings emotions or sounds

In the dark where no rabbit may bound

I think to myself so no one may find

An imperfection nestled in my mind

In the dark where everything's perfect

Because no one knows it's me in it
