This is just an idea I had, I don't really want to write anything concrete so I'm only going to put it in a timeline kind of form 




-A young girl sits at a bar stool looking bored, playing with a cockroach before it runs into a nearby crack in the wood. 

-Her father stands behind the counter, polishing glasses for the customers that never come in. He drops a glass on accident and asks his daughter to run downstairs to get the mop. 

-The girl gets off of the bar stool and walks to the staircase leading down. The lights here don't make sense. There's light where there should be shadows. There's light everywhere in fact. The young girl is missing her shadow as well. She was born that way. Everyone was. 

-When she flips on the light switch leading to the basement the staircase goes from dim light to bright, rather than from dark to light. 

-she walks down to the well lit basement and spots the mop in the corner. 

-as she walks towards the mop a paint can falls over from a nearby metal shelf, spilling paint all over the floor. 

-she curiously walks over the the metal cabinet and hears a terrible scratching noise, like a rat trying to escape a metal tin. 

-she bravely reaches past the paint cans to grab whatever it was, and she pulls back a shamed creature called the dark. 

-the dark is a pitiful looking being. Made of the only shadow in existence. The girl turns the dark around in her hands, asking "what are you?" 

-The dark replies in a surprisingly calm and educated voice. She drops the dark in surprise. the dark makes it's way behind a barrel and a natural shadow is cast where it rests. The first shadow she's ever seen. 

-"what are you?" she repeats 

-"I'm the oldest thing there ever was." it replies 

-"how could you be older than me, when I'm bigger than you?" she asks 

-"Oh, I used to be much bigger, I assure you." 

-they form a bit of a friendship. The girl questions what dark is, and the dark asks her to cup her hands in front of her eyes. she tells him she sees light. He tells her he used to occupy that space. He asks her to cup her hands infront of her eyes again, only in the vicinity of his shadow behind the barrel. She does so again, this time she sees stars, an entire galaxy in the palm of her hands. something that hasn't been seen by makind for centuries. She gets really excited and tries to dance around with her hands over her eyes but as she leaves the shadow the galaxy fades.

-The dark ends up telling the little girl about the history of the world 

-The Dark explains to the girl how mankind used to think of the dark as evil. they decided they'd be better off without darkness all together. The Dark explains how his way of thinking was different then their own, and they hated him for it. 

-They began by cutting off their shadows, and the dark felt every gash. 

-Then they invented a machine that would suck the darkness out of the corners of the world. They went into caves and stole all the darkness. They thought with the darkness gone, there would be no more wars. No more hatred, no more fear. I don't need to tell you they were wrong

-it wasn't much later that mankind found out how to destroy their captured stolen darkness.

-The dark felt every day how he was wasting away , being torn from limb for limb. 

-The girl asks "did you hate light? Did you hate light because they loved it so much?" 

-The Dark laughs. "I loved the light, and she loved me. they ripped us apart because they didn't understand us." 

-"I understand you" says the little girl. 

-The dark laughs softly to himself 

-"Can I do something to help you?" 

-the dark does something that only the dark could tell is a smile "you have, my friend." 

-The girls father calls for her from upstairs, she apologizes to the dark and runs back upstairs. 

-The lights get dimmer as she hits the light switch 

-The dark sits in his corner. The shadows around him growing by the second, engulfing areas where shadows belong

-"Maybe this time they will understand us, light"

A recording I made with my phone on May 28th at 11pm. E had a bad dream and was babbling on trying to make sense of it. 

"Last night...nothing was in my bad dream. (Something) all over again. when I was really really scared. You came out and rescued me from my bad dream, my bad dream followed me.


Well, the bad dream didn't have anything inside it. I just...I just made it up. Mom, I just made the bad dream up. Well, I just dreamed about other stuff sometimes but not too much. Just have bad just make up bad dreams. Mom, I just make up bad dreams, I don' t know why I keep doing that. I just made those bad dreams up. I don't know why. Just went all over again..yeah, I don't know. Nothings in my bad dreams cos bad dreams just happen when you make them up when you does it all over again. And it goes that way when that way when that way when that way. And I don't know which way to run. I don't know. It's just bad dreams and I don't know why. Some guys make bad dreams into good dreams."

and this is why the sky never ends,
and valentines flowers last only a week
before rotting and why we step in puddles
with new shoes on
and why the only memories we remember
are the ones that make us sick inside,
and why so many people fuck
but never love,
and this is why late at night, beneath the covers
as the light bulbs cool off, i feel nothing
in my soul except the ceiling fan.

You love me


I no longer believe


Things are crumbling,


Now,


I've started to see,


My eyes open to the truth,


Beauty is in the air


No more


Thoughts of love lost,


Things are perfect


No more wishing


My eyes are open.
