I was walking home late after work, fairly eerie roads not much street lights along the way I realised that I was comfortable, not that it didn't bother me walking in the dark but that it was
peaceful. I felt a rush all over my body and then calmness. This is the best way to describe it. Not sure about this one either so wouldn't blame any confusion.

Something about the night that makes me feel so awake, nyctophilia is not the cause, there's more depth to it.


The feeling of walking down lonely road comforts me. It soothes my mind knowing I truly am alone in the dark. It puts that forever nagging voice that haunts and echoes deep within my head at rest. No longer thinking I am alone whilst surrounded by people but the most truthful form of feeling lonely.


I used to fight it, I wouldn't accept the fact I simply don't fit in. Changing from persona to persona to feel like I was apart of something but the miserable truth was, I never felt apart of it. Rather than the iconic missing puzzle piece, I was an extra piece to every other puzzle. 


The loneliness taught me value, it taught me that I am my own puzzle, I belonged by not belonging and with in that realisation. I found peace.
