Moonlit sky

…So life was cold.
An eternal sweet night
With stars afar
No touch of light

Forever afraid
Of warming up to freeze again
such terrible fear
Would dawn be my downfall?

So forever running
To make it an eternal night
To flea from light
Again and again

And suddenly a flash
A sweet scent afar
Afraid yet not so
Of that shiny star

Ever so close
A star enlightened me
Even in my sweet cold night
Warmth gave me still

And step by step
It slowed me down
To never run
From that distant dawn…

Howl.

Darkness, the abyss and shelter of all fears. There lies what we keep hidden, what we do not want to know or see. Our most feared monsters that crawl back to us once we turn off our lights. Like a child jumping to his bed, to avoid being catched by the monster living under it at night. Even as adults we tend to fear darkness, even if a little bit, as we do not know what could be hidden in the next corner, and as we cannot see clearly when the light does not shine bright.

However, darkness can be our ally often. When there is no sound and darkness becomes our surroundings, a soothing calm can be found. For most it can be terrifying, but when you embrace it you can feel it. Sublime. If you are together with someone, when your are alone with someone, darkness can become your secret. Your way of connecting the most. You stop seeing and you start feeling. You notice your body, your breath, your every move. You focus on your steps, your hands and suddenly…. Suddenly you realize you don’t need your eyes that much. When in a known environment, you don’t need them at all. You are free of sight, and embraced by other senses.
you are a different being…

Start closing your eyes or turning off lights, and you will start to open your mind and free your soul. For this a lot must be done, but every step takes you closer to the end…
