Its dark

Why is it so dark?

I need light

Why can't I find it?

I'm so sick of the dark

But it is my home

My shelter and protection from the world

I need the dark

I go there when I'm hurting

If it is gone, where will I go?

Not to friends

It is so hard to trust people

They don't understand me

Or what I feel

I only have myself

No one else to comfort me

They don't know whats wrong

I'm not sure if I know whats wrong

I'm stuck

I have no happiness

I hurt but I can't cry

I can't let the feelings out

So darkness closes in

But I know that there is a light

Out there somewhere

Just beyond the darkness

All I need to do is reach out to it

I know that it will be there when I do
