    Every time I am in the midst of happiness,

    I miss the darkness, the shadows and what's hiding inside. Standing in the light all the time makes me long for the men and the challenges of shadows.

    Please write something beautiful that you've seen or done. I'm losing hope and I just want to know that beauty still exists. You can write anything you find beautiful.
