'The darkness surrounds me' is fair enough, since we might say this is a dark that seeps down from above. But 'the darkness surrounds my thoughts' is something else again, and calls for a different word, a word, even, that we don't have: that darkness comes up from inside-beneath, not from outside-above. We need to be able to say: 'the darkness subrounds my thoughts'.
