It’s only a shadow.

If that’s what I think, then it must be true. Right? And fear can only win if allowed to take root.

My mind is a continuous loop of introspection as the shapes on the wall continue to dance through the blanket of darkness via the thin crack under the door.

If not for light, would darkness even exist? And where does the irrational fear of twilight originate?

If I close my eyes, the silhouettes will be gone and I will be consumed by the most natural darkness, which will rock me gently into a deep slumber.

Rose Rayne Rivers (RRR) has always been passionate about writing and storytelling, and she loves reading even more. Her favorite genre to read or write are steamy romance novels—the more she blushes, the more she loves them. Her first novel, The Cupcake Cowboy (seeking representation), was inspired by her true life love story with her husband who she’s been living out her happily ever after with for over twenty years. Her nom de plume is a compilation of the tiny humans who hold her entire heart in their hands—her kids. She began writing later in life when inspired by her oldest to follow the advice she had been pedaling for years - chase your dreams at full speed, no matter how implausible they seem.
