I have always both feared and loved the dark.

When I was a child I feared it

for than to me it only held monsters,

but as I have grown my fear has lessened

to disappear completely.

I used to sleep all day just to be awake in the night

to feel its familiar sigh on my skin.

To be awake with the night creatures

and smile because I was special enough to

be there,

awake.

At odd times after seeing or reading things

that warned me of the dark's danger. 

I would shy away from it like a scolded

child afraid of what might be waiting there,

but like the child I forget its wrongs and love it once more.

But the dark is always different with your eyes close.

To me it feels safer when I am deeply afraid, 

but then again all that I fear was only to be found 

on the back of my own eyelids.

Although now I have nothing too fear

only wishes left unanswered,

wishes of you.

When I close my eyes I can imagine you 

there.

I can feel you beside me

your arms around my waist holding me tight,

face barred in my hair.

Feel your breath drifting across my face,

your chest moving in and out as you breath.

In the dark with my eyes close you are almost there.

I am almost all the things I wish I was,

free,

happy,

safe.

I should be these things without you,

but I don't think I can.

Because in the day I have to open my eyes

and remember that your not there

to reach back and grab my hand

or hold me when I want to cry. 

Maybe that is why I love the dark so well

for in it I am weightless,

 there are no boundaries to be

seen with the night on my skin.

To me the night is pure magic

and with my eyes closed almost anything is possible,

even perhaps even 

me and you?
