the safety of shadows

The darkness is my home
I try to explore and roam
but it pulls me back alone

I try again to find some light
I show the look but I don't feel right
because inside dwells a yearning for night

I seek the black that brings despair
and avoid the white it's too much to bear
the burden too heavy for time to repair

So I block the doors and lock the windows
and I stay inside where nobody knows
the comfort I find in the safety of shadows
