Wandering.  In the dark.  Through a haze.  Alone.

My footsteps echo.  Emptiness.  Like a giant chamber devoid of matter.

Then it flicks on.  A floodlight.

Now it’s not so dark.

But it’s still empty.  Black.  A void.

Only now, I have a guiding light.

It helps.

 

I wander in the dark, through a haze, alone, my footsteps echoing in the emptiness, guided by a bright light.

 

The light grows larger, brighter, and the darkness shrinks away.

Now there’s only light, but it’s still empty.

That’s okay.  I have a friend now.

My shadow.
