A shadowless, dark creature stands alone at the end of my bed.
He reaches out his hand and bellows "come with me".
Although I am reluctant to his command, I take his hand.
"Follow me into the deep and feel my dispair."
Into the depths of darkness we go,
I feel pain within my heart,
it's pounding, shooting thorns with every beat.
He leans in and whispers in my ear,
his breath is warm as he speaks.
"It's okay, you're safe with me."
I am skeptical.
He moves in closer,
we're face to face.
His closeness is soothing,
my body shivers and
tingles from his touch.
He touched me within
the depths of my soul.
The darkness is consuming me,
my every thought, my body.
