I'm drawn to you.
It's only natural.
The light you give off
seems otherworldly
in the middle of this
black mess of a night. 

I know, too, 
the foolishness 
of standing 
beneath the streetlight,
the vulnerability,
the blindness it creates.
The light surrounds 
and gives off a glowing, 
false sense of security;
The night 
seems darker still
in contrast,
and hides worse
just beyond the pale.
It's only natural 
to want the security 
of the light
and to despise
the weakness 
that comes from 
basking beneath it.
