Suffocating, dreary, close, terrifying, and capable of making the strongest succumb to it. That is darkness, it is a place where few want to go, yet some travel there, either out of fear, or loss of self. To some it may seem like refuge, a place to get away from all they don't like, loathe, so they turn to the darkness in hopes of making them stronger, and fuel their desire for what they hope to accomplish. To Others, it is a place they never want to go to. They see the darkness a tread away from it for it is nothing but a Valley of the Shadows of Death. And they instead turn to the Light, and reach out for those who are in the darkness. But some cling to the darkness, like a babe to its blanket. Never wanting to part with it, afraid that if they leave they will leave their very selves behind. The Darkness draws people to itself, like a moth to the flame. Showing whatever it needs to cover another life in the dark place, drawing people away from the Light. Suffocating, dreary, close, terrifying, and capable of making the strongest succumb to it. That is Darkness.
