darkness…

Whenever one thinks of darkness, all sorts of illuminati pop out from the darkest crevices of their minds. Darkness. Assumed to be the curtain behind which all forms of evil thrive. That should be why I most of the society’s evil doers can be assigned to be phototrophic -they stand tall in darkness. Take thieves for example… In movies, the vilains are often presumed to being the dark and sinister forces that stand to destroy whatever is presumed good…

Dark is evil. Malevolent. Malicious…

But have you ever sat in darkness and let yourself be consumed in the blackness of nothing? Letting yourself be drowned in the visible invisibility that is darkness? Well, darkness is quiet. Still quiet. The kind of quiet that settles onto your skin and seeps into your bones so that the only thing you can hear is your own heart beat trying to break the stillness, but unsuccessfully.
I can hear my thoughts; squabbling and ramming into each other. But they are so muffled they could belong to someone else.

The darkness is calming. Silent. And it consumes me wholly. Blocking out the rest of the world, leaving only me and it. The sound of my heartbeat still trying to break the loud silence around me. I am part of this darkness. It, part of me …it feels good to be part of something…
