The darkness truely is a lonely place, one that makes you feel cold.
But one such as I feels welcome to such a place,
Whenever I hear its legend told.

'Tis a good place to be when one wants to be alone,
And also when one wishes to feel free.
For there is no familiar guardian watching you over,
Just a gleaming marble eye, the wind and black sea.

Unfortunately, few have heard its tale,
For it lingers only when children dream.
So why don't you walk out one fateful night,
And watch in wonder as your vicinity gleams.

Now you may say "But I fear the dark!", and dismay my yearning request,
But let me just tell you a little secret of mine.
Not ten months ago, the dark was my fear, the best.
I feared it as a child, all until when,
The moment I saw its Queen.
She appeared one night, saddened she was so dismayed,
It was quite the compelling scene.

So one night I decided,
I shall face my fears (although with closed eyes ;) ).
I walked through shadow without looking back,
And when I finally did looked, I truly was surprised.

For several days after, through the transforming of a child mind, I repeated that in practice.
Quite soon after that, it came to be that my fear of dark I could willfully dismiss.

So walk outside one night,
And calmly gaze at the sky,

My story is done, my time is over,
Now I say "Farewell.", *bow*, and goodbye.
And also good flipping night! It's goshdarn 4:13 in the morning, ****!

*EDIT*
This is based on a true story. Also, the queen I speak of is princess Luna from MLP;FIM

Now that is a story that I can relate to! Definitely earns some sort of little reward considering you stayed up until 4:13

I can't get to it; It says it's forbidden. May I ask you what the the link was supposed to lead me too?
