Into The Darkness

The dark stormy clouds roll over head again,
the darkness is closing in on me again.
I want to find the light,
I want to find it,
but the darkness welcomes me more.
I sink deeper and deeper,
I feel like I'm never going to be free.
The murky waters pull me with them,
the current is stronger than I am,
I look up once more,
the clouds are here now.
I watch with a sadness as the clouds close,
the final piece of light closing,
being pressed shut by the clouds.
I look down,
and feel warm in my waters.
I see the cave appearing in the distance.
my new home,
my darkness,
a huge part of me now.
It welcomes me,
it loves me.
it is me.
the light is gone now,
and I'll be okay here.
for now.

This seems to me like you are trying to discover who you are, everything about yourself... And the only place you feel like you can find it is in your solitude, which is what the darkness you're speaking of resembles (to me) and the ending is stating that you may be scared of what you find, but that you're taking your time. I really like it, it's great and eye opening(: 5/5

It might be the picture but I really like the tone of the piece. It doesn't come out as passionate but rather subtly. Like the person is talking softly to themself or thinking aloud. I really liked it. Nice work
