Darkness Swallows You Whole

Darkness Swallows You Whole

A Story by Dark Angel ~

Wrote this when I was depressed one day

There are days when- even though you desperately want to- you don't feel. Can't feel, no matter what you try. You fake a smile, a laugh, so you don't worry the ones who love you. You pretend to be happy so people don't ask you what's the matter. You close yourself off because, even though you know you shouldn't, you'd rather wallow in the ocean of your sorrow than face the real world. You don't know why you feel this way, and because you don't know the source, you don't know how to make it stop. The ocean gets deeper and you struggle to remain at the surface. The deeper it gets, the harder you fight, the weaker you get. The weaker you get, the easier it is to give in and drown in the cold, dark water. Joy disappears, smiles become a myth, and love is a far-off memory, almost a dream. Nothing anyone does can bring you back to the sun, even if they pulled you out and gave you their life. The sun can never touch you again because the dark made you far too sensitive to light.

Where am I, exactly?, FL

Izzy. Short for Ismode. I write... All the time xD sadly, I don't have the time to post them here. I'm nerdy, a choir geek, and probably really, really weird. I tend to be quiet until I get to know y.. more..
