In the dark

Sometimes
when light disappears
there is a moment
the illusion of safety
dissolves
and the expanse of everything
creeps into consciousness
catching breath
stopping heartbeat
feeling at once
exposition
connection
and fear

In that moment
of shocking knowingness

I want my fucking anonymity back

But
in the dark
there is no place to hide
