Darkness and Light
Sometimes while walking through the forest, the darkness encroaches so slowly that you don't notice that it's there.
Your eyes adjust to the lack of sunlight, you move forward, unaware. You never stumble or falter or realize that there is anything at all wrong with your travels.
And by and by the sun begins to rise, a sun you never noticed was missing. A flicker of light makes it's way between the trees, shininge. You turn around and try to move away from it. It becomes hard to see.
Your focus is lost.
You are scared but drawn.
You can't move or breathe or feel.
And the light gets brighter. . .
Your eyes begin to adjust to the way things should be. You remember what it was once like to see the details in the world around you.
A familiar joy rises up within in you, beckoning your forward. You move faster and step closer anxious to continue to allow your world to brighten.
You are chasing the sun,
terrified of losing it again,
off getting lost in the darkness,
