The Opaque Room by Nimar

You don’t know what dark is
You haven’t slept in it;
Awakened to it;
Bathed in it;
Cried tears with it
(alone)
No, darkness has never been close to you
It’s a black light that keeps shining in me
And it’s a constant voice that keeps
talking to me
Trying to save me, are you?
I hear you all the time
You have always been there,
As long as I have been.

You shout out when I am silent
When I lay down, you lay down beside me
You sing to me, and I sing back

But when in the light, although you are here;
your voice is faded.
I’m sorry if the day scares you
but I will always be your friend
I will always listen.
(come out)
Yet I know that there is a beauty in black
that so many will never know.
Black smoke;
Rising;
In a black room
Rising. Swirling.
Clouded.
(come out)
Yet I know that there is a beauty in black
that so many will never know.
Rising
Looming
Risen
Through a winded soul
The carrion crow;
Gawking.
Yet I know that there is a beauty in black
that so many will never know.

And You have always been there with me
I wasn’t alone.

21, Male.
