and maybe i need them both

i know i need them both, actually

i’m just afraid no one would understand

i was birthed from darkness

there are holes throughout my body that house darkness due to the unspeakable acts done in the light

there are scars that sit on my skin

that scream when i step into the sun

how is it that light is the only place where i can be seen

yet that same light blinds the eyes and deafens the ears to the screams of my shadows

they tried to convince me that the light is where i was meant to be

and it wasn’t until that very moment that i knew i’d never be completely whole without the darkness…
