Every day I suppress my body to the darkness and I hide beneath her inky veil of comfort. She conceals my despair and holds it unyielding, like a maternal embrace.  My screams are muffled from the alleviate needles of her sedation and my head lays to rest in her compassionate lap.  Her shadowy fingers stroke my hair tenderly as she hums a dark melody into the opaque atmosphere which covers me like a childhood blanket.
