The dark is a comfort to me and always has been. I’ve spent a good majority of my life in it — literally and metaphorically. I’ve made friends there no one can see, and from time to time, these friends watch me sleep. They carry me away to different worlds in dreams that have shown me equally awe-inspiring and horrific things. I also experience this in my waking hours.

Things written in the dark may be difficult to take in, but my hope is for them to be eye-opening.
