So often we see darkness portrayed as a fiction. Be it werewolves or zombies or vampires, the tales we hear of it always seem to be something other than human. Maybe we make this separation in the stories we tell ourselves in order to make it easier for us to sleep at night. If the monsters aren’t real, then they can’t actually hurt us.
Unfortunately, the truth is a lot more unsettling. Monsters do exist, and the scariest ones don’t have fangs, and they don’t walk on all fours. Hiding in the souls of each and every one of us lie the darkest parts of the world.
