“I am the thing that keeps you
fighting to stay alive.”
I am the keeper of darkness. The thing you confide in when you think no one else is listening. I am the whispers in your mind, reminding you of your every fault, your every flaw. Your every weakness. I am the thing that goes bump in the night, though you never actually hear me creeping up behind you.
I am the keeper of darkness. The thing that knows you better than you know yourself. I am the shivers that travel down your spine and the thing that keeps your eyes wide open in fear. The thing that haunts you. Keeps you in my vice grip.
I am the keeper of darkness. Because I am you. And you are me. But I am also the one thing that keeps you fighting. Keep you alive. Together, we are infinite. Together we will live on.

Together, we rise.
Heart and mind as one.
