Darkness

Can't see you. I'm blind. My eyes are dark and there is nothing around me -- not like night time, because there are no stars ... there is absolutely nothing. This is a void. This is emptiness incarnate.

I am frightened. I look around and I can see nothing. I do not know where I am going and I do not know if there is even anywhere that I can go. So I walk blindly, in faith. Perhaps if I believe that there are no edges I will not fall.

Where are you? Have you found a way to see? Have you got out of this place? I am still trying to make out your familiar outline in the darkness but it is all shadows, and you are just another, blended in. Why are you not calling out to me?

And yet I have not called to you. Perhaps it is for the same reason. I am scared that if I call you, something else will hear. I am scared that if I call you, something else will come.

The End
