A date with Darkness.

(This post has been picked by BlogAdda as the WOW post.)

On a cold January morning, if you leave your house early in the morning for a run, say at five, all you could probably see and feel is the chill. And  perhaps, the darkness.

I used go for my usual run during that time of the day and the only question that I would encounter by my father and mother was if I was, at all, afraid of the dark. 

Darkness has always been perceived as a scary place. But I am not afraid of the dark but of what lies within it. Even your shadow refuses to be with you and that is exactly what lies inside the darkness - loneliness. I fear of being taken over by myself when I am alone. I fear the haunting feeling of despair and disappointment. I fear being the only one bearing the effects of what I always dread. 

But, I still love darkness. The only thing certain about darkness is that it ends. And it ends gracefully. 

Just like the beautiful rays of the sun takes away all my tiredness of my morning run, every time the darkness surrounds me, I am hopeful that a certain ray of light is on its way to wash away all my fatigue that is caused by the sadness of being alone and helpless.

Darkness ends always :) True Gaabu :) And, short but well written! I guess at times darkness and silence are perfect companions you need for solitude. or so I believe..

Thank you Shashank! I am glad to see you here after such a long time. Solitude is indeed embraced by the silence, but I am not sure if darkness does the same!
