My Friend, The Foe

When the stars are blacked out by the stars

The darkness becomes your closest friend.

Wrapping you in a blanket of coldness

And tucking you into your bed of loneliness.

 

The loneliness becomes your solace

Familiar and safe

The coldness wrapped so tightly around you.

Seeping into you.

DON’T reach out

DON’T ask anyone to save you

They don’t care

They do not keep you company like your loneliness does.

 

They lie and tempt you.

Evil temptress Happiness

She is not yours

She deludes you with laughter and sweet smiles.

 

Stay safe

Stay in your loneliness

Coldness will protect you

loneliness will never hurt you

You will never be hurt again.
