A drop of a sunlight filtering in
And you think it’s poison, within
Smiles, laughter and infectious joys
And you skitter about, thinking aloud
The impending clouds, and shattering ploys…

I’m more dark than what seems. I bring light into lives only to hide the darkness I hold behind my back. You couldn’t fight me, because I turn your biggest demon, I’m what you are scared of. I am happiness. And if I am here, the darkness couldn’t be far.

You don’t know to be happy without me. You need me to cross your path and say, “I’m here.” And even then, your baffled stare never wavers till you blink and break out into that tentative, doubting smile.I will be there, but never do I have you full faith or attention. I can always see the darkness behind me in your mind, thinking. The fickle me.

Funny thing is, I don’t choose to be there. Only you can bring me in you, only you have the power to dispel all the darkness and yet, you think it’s the whimsical, restless me who is flitting about and away.

And I think, it is the fickle You.

  7. Is darkness absence of light or absence of vision ?
    or is it just about void of wavelength and frequency ?
    Is darkness a mere void of reflection?
    Is Darkness a perception?
