A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (May 2015-August 2018)
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?


62. Distractions mean we are not alone.


30th July 2015

Darkness is a form of loneliness; loneliness is a form of darkness. Being in the dark means that you are secluded from everything else. In addition to this, you have to make sure whether or not your eyes are open or if you’ve gone blind. It is this fact that brings panic to the darkness, it the unknown that brings the fear.

There are forms of darkness that I feel comfortable in, however.

Walking under the night sky is an example of this. It fits in its category because it is in fact not entirely dark. The sky is freckled with stars and the moon, if I am lucky, and the bright glare of street lamps. You are not alone because you can always hear the last song of a bird, or the wind, or a lone hoot of an owl. I am not scared of the darkness in this instance. I feel almost refreshed when walking in night time – there’s just something that cannot be replicated by day time.

I read something that said that the Sun loved the Moon so much that he died each night to let her breath. I think that is enough to put night into perspective. That was just a random thought though.

When darkness is dispersed by candle light or noise is another example. Last night I slept over at my sister’s to have a sister night. It was quite interesting in the way that it wasn’t all that dark with the scattered scented candles and the TV on in the background. This scattered the darkness and it didn’t feel like any weight was pushing down on me – whether that be tiredness or awkwardness. There was always something to keep the crunch of eating, or the noise of laughter going. For example the names of Nathalie Vancauwenberghe and Hartmut Albert brought so many tears to our eyes and snorts of laughter out of our mouths.

How on earth do you live with such names nevertheless pronounce them?

That was another random thought – since I have been on my feet all day and now I’m finally relaxing my brain hasn’t caught up yet.

C’mon brain – hurry up!

Anyway, I think that if we are distracted enough we don’t feel quite alone.
