“I shut my eyes in the dark.
Silly, right? It’s just a thing I do.
It doesn’t really change things. Still pitch black.
But I do it anyway because I figure…
Anything that shows itself only in total darkness can’t be terribly pleasant.
“So I shut my eyes to avoid seeing what might be out there.
What might have eyes open for me.
And I feel my way through the dark, surrounded by things I don’t want to see.”
