Darkness Embraced


In the darkness is where I lay the troubles of  hardened days

Protected under the cover of night, wings safely on display

Absent is the fear from those who judge and criticize

Divergence from communal norms, garnering exquisite prizes

Cloaked behind the reassuring security of the shadows

Excluding the self-confident one who challenged and followed

Authority known, my will crushed under the weight of the stare

Possessive acceptance fills the air and is nearly more than I can bear

Uncertainty makes an attempt to creep in that I futilely try to I hide

Earning me a severe reprimand under an unyielding hand

Inflaming nerve-endings with shocks of dancing, hot electricity

Alternating gentle caresses upon my skin dispels the toxicity

Restraints embrace the uninhibited spirits, which is immanent

Inside the darkness impediments are irrelevant this is evident

“I’m just a girl in the world…that’s all you’ll let me be...” Southern California Native who gets in trouble for sarcasm, suffers from bouts of OCD, and listens to an eclectic range of music really, really loud especially while driving too fast. Turn up the Rap, R&B, Punk, Billy, Indie, Alternative, Classic, Folk, Metal, and Grunge, Melodic, Industrial, Electronic, Soul and so on you get the point.
