“You can’t reason with your heart; it has its own laws, and thumps about things which the intellect scorns.” – Mark Twain------Visit Prompt Nights for 'light is easy to love. Show me your darkness' prompt...
That first summer when I was all alone at home, I realized that the nights are totally different from the days and it is not because of the presence and absence of light but the difference is all about the presence of shadows. There are shadows in our mind and out there in the darkness. A shadow is creepier in darkness and it can cling to anywhere; it just needs a single sip of light to burgeon and the mind a single bit of doubt to shatter into a thousand pieces of fear. And the bits mirror each other intensifying the pangs of doubt and fear.
I locked my room, switched on the light and chanted the mantras to summon the light of intellect back. When you are tired and had done your duty, you sleep like a baby.
