“But I knew what would happen
if I let you in.
Your darkness would consume me.”
I noticed as your eyes lingered on me in the shadows. The way the light seemed to be devoured by them. How not even the stars in the night sky could make them sparkle. But that darkness didn’t deter me. I was already drawn to you. Twin black holes drawing me in. Like I could allow myself to get lost in those eyes and never worry about finding anything else ever again. And oh, how much I wanted to get lost in those eyes.
But I knew. I knew what would happen if I let you in. Your darkness would consume me.
