The Darkness We Weave
“We all come from broken pasts, murmured the voice from underneath the hood. The Dark attracts the grieving. The sounds of lament are a pleasure to its senses. All who embrace the Dark know loss before they are granted its blessing.” — Rin Chupeco, The Shadowglass
We are birthed from a cavern cloaked in darkness.
Entering a world where there is light
that shares time with dark.
Every time we suffer, are pained, are hurting
do we retreat into light or into darkness?
We are brought up in this idea that dark, darkness, dark colors, shadows
represent evil and doom.
The dark is where I have solitude and calm,
where light cannot distract me with its searing brilliance.
I used to be scared of the dark.
It was full of uncertainty and the unknown.
Now, it’s the place I go to find myself and figure them out.
It is where I find strength to venture back into light
and brave another turn.
