"They made their own choice. They chose family. And, well... isn't that kinda the whole point? No doubt - endings are hard. But then again... nothing ever really ends, does it?"
--Chuck, 'Supernatural' Episode 522

Darkness controls my mind,
Weaves its spiny tendrils through my already
Shattered heart.
Blood drips from the thorns pressing into my sides,
Yet oddly, it doesn't hurt.
The darkness,
Crushing me from the inside out,
Feels good, long-awaited release,
Icy enough to soothe my burning soul.
The light fades from within,
Replaced by the malevolent caliginosity of the outside,
But I don't mind.
I drown inside my mind, my thoughts
Vise-like, choking, strangling.
And as the night fades away, I remain intact,
The only thing of that time remaining.
And I finally feel like I belong.

"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." --Pluto
