Part 1: Darkness

by mandaceehb

Away from their watchful eyes we lay

In the blackness we stir

Locked out of the light

Comforted by the embrace of darkness


Soft noises from the outside world

Probe gently into our ears and minds

Voices and footsteps we hear

Too far off to define


Sleep, sleep, they say

We shut our eyes

Wait for our hearts to be at peace

With the entity we have always lived in behind closed eyes

And what surrounds us now
