This light. It burns. I don't understand why because everyone always says that light is good. It doesn't feel good. It feels like pain. It shows me the truth of everything that I don't want to see. The scene of a murder is found in the daylight. The lonely child stands under the streetlight. The runaway teenager leaves by moonlight. Tearful wishes are made by starlight. So why does everyone say that light is so good? I think that it would be better if we were all bathed in darkness…

How very interesting, but so very true... :P It makes you think. :) When I read this, it reminded me of the song "Music of the Night" from The Phantom of the Opera musical, especially these lyrics:

Close your eyes, for your eyes will only tell the truth
And the truth isn't what you want to see
In the dark, it is easy to pretend
That the truth is what it ought to be...


Both the song and your piece have great wisdom, I think. :)

You did a great job! :clap: Keep up the good work! :+fav:

This pieces was made to match the "Dark" one, i guess?
I like how you brought examples:
"The scene of a murder is found in the daylight. The lonely child stands under the streetlight. The runaway teenager leaves by moonlight. Tearful wishes are made by starlight."
because it shows that the narator actually has a point, lol.
I also think it was a good thing to end the piece with the suggestion "I think that it would be better if we were all bathed in darkness…"

Thank you for bringing those out. I wrote this as I was posting all of the others because for some reason, I didn't have it. It was similar to the original, but I added in those things that you mentioned. I wasn't sure if they were good, so thank you.
