Sit With Me In The Dark

I wanted to scream so loud, but I don't want anyone to hear my heart breaking any more than it does. And I just want to calm the chaos on my mind. Even just for a second.

SIT WITH ME IN THE DARK

 

Sit with me in the dark, I am scared a lot.

And could you be quiet with me for a while? My heart chokes with a lot of unspoken bruises of the past, and I’m afraid I might stop breathing. I think I might crumble too much, if I speak or do anything.

I wanted to scream so loud, but I don’t want anyone to hear my heart breaking any more than it does. And I just want to calm the chaos on my mind. Even just for a second.

It’s not the shadows that scare me, nor the darkness. I’ve gotten used to this. But it’s the emptiness that scares me, and realizing I’m all alone. Unloved, forgotten. Discarded.

So I beg you. Please, stay a while longer, and if you could, hold my hand. Let me know you’re here, despite the dark. I’m frightened so much.

Just please. Sit with me in the dark, I am scared a lot.
