don't you leave me in the dark

when you are in the dark,
everywhere looks the same.
it does not matter where
you are standing, or what
you are thinking;
everything looks the same.

the dark is the great equalizer,
all ugly things made beautiful in shadow,
all beautiful things made ugly in doubt.
no setting is distinguishable
from any other; all places seem
to be one in the same.

and suddenly, in the dark,
all things begin to feel the same.
although you could reach your
hands out and feel your way out,
why move at all when you know
you will only be in the dark
somewhere else later
and it will be exactly as it is
here, now, forever;
consistently empty and constantly unfeeling.

when you are in the dark,
everything looks the same.
