The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors by Diana Gomes


What is it about the darkness in an unfamiliar place?

Why does it take more convincing to let one's guard down?

The dark is what it is.

Yet, to rest assured in safety is a hard sell.

Especially when the one doing the convincing is your thinking brain and the one that needs convincing is your gut instinct.
