Give in to the Darkness

Give in
to the darkness 

let it spill out 
upon the page

Let the darkness 
soak into the paper 
as it leaves you

your heart 
your soul

Use the pages 

the darkness within

Give in to it

Write what 
haunts you
scares you

Let those feelings 
where they may


get it out

Then let it go
