I’m that girl, Darkness
The one who has never known light
The one who had given up hope on finding it,
A bleak future is all I could see
All this time I thought I was flawed
Only to realise I’ve been looking through broken mirrors
Still, I thought, do I really want to leave this place?
I didn’t even know I could leave if I wanted to,
A sad reminder of my loneliness lingers,
That’s why I never bothered in the first place.
So yes, it seemed impossible.
“There’s a way out!” I heard a voice, but I do I really want to listen,
This has defined me for so long that I don’t know who I am without it.
Do I remember you, you ask
How could I not when you consumed and tamed me
You took me, turned me upside down and shook me
Like coins I saw my happiness scatter to the floor
It was you who, even when I tried to peep through the light, convinced me that darkness is the only place I belong
It was your presence that convinced me I will never be enough
You turned all my dreams to nightmares, but now, I have to leave.
Yes, I am leaving you and from now on I will no longer remember you
The only time you will cross my mind is when I look back to see how far I’ve come
When I said I remembered you, I lied because
From now on, I’ll only remember light.
