As he stands there
lost in the depths,
knee-deep in deep thought,
he looks into the abyss
and knows not
what stares him back.
He ponders the darkness,
wondering just how it came to be,
how there could be nothing here,
yet everything as well.
And as he pontificates the pitch-blackness,
the void opens up around him,
and even though he can’t see it,
he can feel it ripping open
as the earth must when an angel falls.
Suddenly, he collapses with weakness,
his struggle with darkness seeming to close
its mighty jaws around him.
But he knows,
deep within these jaws,
and within himself,
the light of all existence will be found,
and the beast will detain him
no longer.
