Whispers

Check out more from my Embracing Darkness series.

Through the cold abyss, Darkness whispers. 

You’re weak. You don’t deserve friends.

You lie. 

You’re not good enough. You’re nothing.

I cover my ears, hum a happy tune to drown it out. 

They hurt you. Hurt them back.

No. I won’t.  

You’re a vengeful person. Go on, take your revenge.

Shut up!

You can’t silence me. I’m your worst fears, your nightmares, your pain and suffering.

I said, shut up!

Do something crazy. Do something to show them how they can’t get away with this.

Go away.

You can’t fight me. I’m you.

And I’m you. So shut up and do as I say.

Silence. 

Yeah. I thought so.
