The Darkness Inside
Don’t be afraid. The darkness you’re in is not greater than the darkness inside your own body, they are two darknesses separated by a skin. I bet you’ve never thought of that, you carry a darkness about with you all the time and that doesn’t frighten you… my dear chap, you have to learn to live with the darkness outside just as you learned to live with the darkness inside.
