OKAY.

Standard

Oh we still are frightened children;
pulling the blankets a little higher and putting down our heads on legs, ones that shiver with the thought of what awaits us.

No bedside lamp for this dark, to stop the shapes from becoming monsters, we are sword-less but shrieking in whimpers for help. And the world seems to become so much larger once you breathe a little faster, and slowly the warmth goes away just as you begin to wonder when light was last seen by your eyes.

But as the sun decides to save you, you realise;
fear should never have had become our residence,
not when we had a room, in a home with blankets to protect us for when the lights go out.

 

So we get out of bed, trembling,
but eventually meant to be

 o k a y 


until it begins all over again.

  1. Oh my God? This thing I just read. I don’t know what to say.
    Listen, this is brilliantly written and presented. This is… I mean. Very honestly one of the best things I’ve read in a while.

    • OH GOD. IT TOOK ME 5 DAYS TO BE ABLE TO LET THIS COMMENT, SINK IN.
      YARRRR. WHY YOU DO THIS?
      I’m 110% terrible at finding the right words for SUCH honouring words from a person, and now ahem dear friend 🙂 , whom I (honestly) highly regard! So please do pardon me for chickening out and leaving this very sweet comment, pending. :$
      But know that you’ve managed to make someone miles away, beam with UTTER joy.
      And there can be no thanking enough for an act so kind. :’)
