The ChoiceA Poem by Sugar and Spice
Darkness controls her every move,
But it only comes when it is called,
Not by her, not by her consciously,
It subconsciously controls her thoughts,
Everything she does is what it wants.
She flees from it, she fights it constantly,
But the pain always numbs her response,
Breaking down her barriers,
Darkness finds its way through.
When everything else fails,
When everything she loves is gone,
Darkness is there to save her.
It’s her bed to fall upon,
It’s her pillow to sob into.
It hides her tears,
It hides her weaknesses,
It takes her heart and makes it whole.
But not without consequence,
It never does anything for free.
Ask for its help only once and you can never go back.
Darkness is cruel, it enslaves you,
And once it has you, it doesn’t realise you without a fight.
It cuts you up inside, whilst you scar your outsides.
It makes you feel dependant, reliant on it to get you through the day,
And it works, but only for a little while.
So escape while you can, always stay in full sunlight, no matter how dark it is.
Once you step over into the dark, you can’t go back,
Believe me, I’ve tried.
No matter how much pain you are in, it’s simply not worth it.
Darkness doesn't get rid of the pain,
It simply makes you end it yourself…
