Inky and thick, the darkness enveloped me. It drove away the warmth and dragged my mind into deep crevices it should never peer into. It felt like nothing would ever lift this darkness. It swallowed me whole.
Until one day. One day, and he is sitting there with me. He is holding my hand and rubbing circles on my back. He doesn’t even say anything about the binder there.
It’s his warmth that brings me back. His smile. His laugh. His everything. It shines bright in my life.
It’s him that lights my path.
