What Lurks

I love the dark – that velvety embrace, being alone with myself and whatever it is that lurks there. I know its silly but, I've always been a little afraid of the dark. As I've gotten older, I find that fear still lingers, but, now as an enticement rather than a deterrent. The dark is mysterious and exciting. So many things happen in the dark that we might not have the courage to do in the light. It is a comforting shroud – anonymous and protective. And, more often than not, I have found the things that lurk to be quite appealing indeed.

I feel exactly the same way. I used to be afraid of the dark as well because of the things that go bump in the night. However, when i met my girlfriend everything changed. Now when im in the dark i always hear her and see her. The shroud of darkness is my home and the most comforting place ive ever known

Oh,good. I feel much the same way. Let's go work on our moon tans together... ??
