I am a light switch!

You see,
when I am switched on
suddenly everything turns bright,

and when I am switched off
I become one with the darkness

I could be too bright at times,
or a an utterly dark self

It is hard to recognize me
when it is dark,
I am unseen

But I cannot recognize myself
when it is bright,
I am blinded

All I need is
the right trigger
to turn a bright room
into a graveyard

So please be more
careful with me

I am a light switch
