DARKNESS…

Darkness has a distinct sound. Darkness has a distinct colour. Darkness is nothing but an ever-encompassing void from which no one can escape eternally. Slowly but surely, one after the another, it engulfs every thing.

We are masters of deception. The bright colours of day are perfect camouflage for us. We can hide our true colours in the vivid colourful layers of our surroundings. We have bright colourful masks which blend perfectly with our surroundings. We have bright colourful masks which hide our ugly scars with ease. There is enough brightness around us which enables us to hide our inner darkness. We can mask colours of our distorted psyche with ease and blend it into the vivid and vibrant canvases out there. There is enough colour around us to fill the voids in our conscience. Taking advantage of lively sounds of light, we are able to hide the howling of the wolves beneath the layers of our scarred skin. There is enough warmth around us to enable us to conceal the chill in our frozen eyes. Light presents us with the opportunity to conceal our real identity and present ourselves to the world with a manufactured identity.

It is total darkness which brings to the fore our true colours and our bare truth. The darkness outside resonates with the darkness inside us. The void of total darkness turns us into what we always have been and what we always will be, bare primal beings. It is the absence of colour which brings our true colours out. There is no need of vivid masks to hide our ugly scars with. There is no need of colours to paint our face with. There is no need for any kind of pretence. There is no need to hide the ugly scars. The coldness in our eyes is there for every one to see. There is no need for the brightness to conceal our inner darkness. There is no need of colours to paint our words with. The naked chill in our words is on display for any one to see.

When the darkness calls, there is absolutely nothing to stop the wolves howling under our skin to come tumbling out.

No one is above the spell bounding sound of darkness. As night falls, this sound travels like a Tsunami, consuming and devouring any one and every one in its path and all that is left is countless wolves howling on the streets.. hunting for prey.

Darkness has a sound. ARE YOU LISTENING?
