I wish to show you the darkness you are so afraid of. Trust me. This darkness is a place you can enter and be as safe in as you are anywhere; you can put one foot in front of the other and believe the sides of your eyes. Memorize it. You will know it again in your own time. When the appearances of things have left you, you will still have this darkness. Something of your own you can carry with you. - Margaret Atwood, from Selected Poems II: 1976 - 1986
I look in the picture that is in this old house, that someone told me is mine and all I see is empty faces-empty faces! "I-I-The demons... there here In this small, wrecked town." I said in a small thin voice. There gone and they will only come in my dreams.
