I am connected to the darkness in the way that skittles are connected to rainbows, by color, not flavor.
I love the blackness, the charcoals, the purples and blues. I embrace the mist and the shadows.
I find the flamboyance of color to be chaos. but I have a calming penchant for all things dark.
I remember a time when the flavor of darkness was tainted with the particles and memories of real life monsters.
But today, as I’ve grown in the cusp of the shadows, I have learned to love the things of make believe stories and Hollywood movies. The draculas, the ghosts, the goblins and Frankenstien’s monster.
And my monster? It’s not so scary anymore.
