Life of Darkness

FREE WRITING

4

Tears are written out of poetry, and poetry written out of
tears.

Fear and beauty go hand in hand,
sadness and joy just a reflection.

Darkness hides the truth in shadow, only showing 
contrast.

The darkest bits, and the brightest bits show ever
stronger.

And reality is warped, and forgotten in the darkness.
Reality renewed.

Creativity shines strongest in darkness, both physical,
and mental. 

Words flow smoothest at the dark of midnight,
Music sings loudest with the heart cries. 

Darkness hides reality, creativity shows a new reality. 
Does anyone else write the best at night? Cause I do, and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone. I once read that it's because exhaustion inhibits your brain's rational decision making processes, and so when you write you don't feel as compelled to make things seem real.

    Oooh I really like this piece. "Darkness hides the truth in shadow, only showing contrast." is my favourite line because it truly made me think and go, wow!
    The footnotes: Thank you so much for sharing that because yes!! I always write better at night and I had no idea why (not good since I like to sleep early- and then I just can't sleep until I write, write, write lolll).
