Midnight absolution

inspired by the In Eclipse challenge

Etched into my DNA, imprinted on my heart, you make it such a simple

choice to choose–I'll always pick shadows if it means you'll have the

light. For you were meant for it, the sun's glory and the moonbeams' bath, firelight and starry glow. Yet I,

I am meant for other. A willing

phantom of the darkness; a depthless, blackened void to drain your

sorrows, ease your pain; I'll do anything to keep the taint of pitch from bleeding onto you.

Ever your slave to the night. Your midnight absolution.


Thank you very much for reading :)

    Wow. I think this is one of my faves. 'I'll always pick shadows if it means you'll have the light.' Damn!

  • I was once like this. But now I choose myself. I do have relapses though because it's tough to do that when I'm a pathological people pleaser but I'm trying hehehe. Loved your Acrostic!
