Sleepy Sundays: The Dark Side

The Dark Side The Dark Side

Like it or not we all have a darker side. Humans are complex individuals with a mind-numbing range of emotions. Each aspect of our personalities cannot be easily explained. Sometimes unfortunate events or unsavory people can bring out the worst in us. Some of our darker sides are more aggressive, while some are simply withdrawn and full of self-loathing.

It’s important to acknowledge that darkness isn’t always filled with anger. There are times when the deepest voids and most shadowy of places can be felt while in a cave of sadness or depression. That is the feeling I was trying to channel in this piece. The character feels “locked in silence” and is clearly experiencing some stage of extreme emotional pain. I felt its “creepy feel” was perfect for this time of year with Halloween being right around the bend and all.

What is your emotional outlet?

Have a quiet Sunday!

  1. Oh my gosh, I loved this piece! Just exactly what I needed to read these days, as I’m in my dark side right now 😉
    My outlet is get a horror book or browse some scary/paranormal/gothic pics and stories on internet ;))
    Happy Halloween this year! I know it’s your holiday 😉

    1. I most certainly do.

      Totally unrelated – you were on my mind quite a bit this weekend. It started Saturday. I was in the supermarket & surprisingly, they play some good music there sometimes. So I was grabbing the last of our stuff and what song do you think I hear come rolling on…
      It was the strangest thing. I never hear that song anymore & yet, there it was. I immediately thought of you.

      Back on subject, though. Writing is such a cathartic release. I’m glad you have it. & Girl, I mean you have it. You always pull me right in within the first few sentences. That is a gift.
