Sanctuary of Night

I sit in a prison of my own making, 

Shrouded in dense darkness

I cherish it’s heavy embrace,

Even as the arms wrapped around me

Squeeze a bit too tight

Still, it is something familiar, 

A comfort only I can understand

As day comes, I am left alone

Without my sanctuary of darkness, 

Once again
