Kindness is choosing love over hate, light over darkness, and compassion over judgment.

When She Met Darkness

April 27, 2021

when she met darkness, the night stretched on for miles, 
and it pushed her down beneath the frigid waves, and
cried out, "You're useless" 
the waves were rough, their gentle touch forgotten, 
pushing her around, twisting her until she forgot
that such a thing as kindness had ever existed.

Help me, darkness has reached its hands around my neck, I'm choking. 

when she met darkness, it decided to never let her go, 
the night was endless, the stars were stolen and locked away, 
none of their light could shine down on where she stood. 
there is no longer enough laughter to soften the edges of pain, 
no longer enough courage to fight back. 

Help me, the night is so dark, the stars are no longer there to give me hope. 

when she met darkness, it smothered her light beneath its icy glare, 
it could not be swayed or changed, 
it held her there, a light in its darkness, 
she asked it why. 

Help me, I can feel the light fading fast. 

when she met darkness, It took her in its arms and clung to her, 
crying and crying, tears melting the pitch black to a gray. 

"I wanted a light in my suffocating darkness,
I tried to bring the stars back but they were buried too deep in myself, 
I couldn't find them." 


when she met darkness, the darkness turned to light.

    I love the use of italics and descriptive words to really set a mood for this piece of writing!

    Wow! This is so amazing! There's such vivid imagery throughout and the last line is especially powerful! I love the dialogue/thoughts in italics. Adding them in really adds emotion! this sentence was specifically tragic, "twisting her until she forgot/ that such a thing as kindness had ever existed." Amazing job :))
