Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody

“People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” 
― Carl Jung, Psychology and Alchemy

Your thoughts kill you. Don't they?

Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift. – Mary Oliver

Moon Is My Only Friend

“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.” 
― Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

Love Me Like My Demons Do

The roses have wilted,
The violets are dead.
The demons run circles
Round and round in my head.
