Poem: The Friend

Darkness is my friend.

We get along so well.

That I need it to live.

It is everything I used to fear,

But now I hold it dear.

Light and I used to be cool.

Me and light are no longer good,

It scares me for the happiness it brings.

We used to be friends, best friends indeed.

Then I saw it go out of the very thing I love.

Without knowing it my heart went dark.

It has stayed that way since we went apart.

Maybe I will find the light again,

But right now darkness is my best friend.
