it's dark. very dark.
[[dark|why is it so dark?]]
maybe it's [[always been|always been this way]].
maybe [[what|you don't know]].
it's all really confusing. you don't like it. the dark is strange.
something is in your hand. you [[light|turn it on]].
the dark is almost comforting. you like the dark. it's simple.
you hear [[something|something]] move in front of you.
there is a click. then a tiny point of light.
the light keeps moving. it shines on the [[the floor|something]] below you.
a ball of light the size of your head is in your hands. it had a switch at the bottom, which you pressed.
you could [[move|move]] it around.
or you could turn it [[off|off]].
something is holding the tiny point of light. there's not enough to see what it is.
[[speak|speak]] to it.
[[stare|stare]] at it.
you turn the light off.
it's dark. you can't see the floor of the [[cave|cave]] anymore.
you lift it up high. you can't see the floor anymore.
gosh, this [[cave|cave]] is huge.
the thing turns the light off.
it's dark again.
guess it was [[nothing|nothing]].
" w h a t a r e y o u ? " you ask.
your voice [[echo|echoes]] across the cave.
you fell down in this cave and someone shut the entrance above and behind you. all you had was the light.
suddenly, a horrible low boom of a voice in some other language [[echo|fills]] the cave.
the voice reverberates off the walls.
quiet falls again. the silence waits to be broken.
[[break it|break]] it.
[[leave it|leave]] it.
something was holding the tiny point of light. there wasn't enough to see what it was.
[[speak|speak]] to it.
how do you break it?
do you [[hold|hold]] the light?
do you [[love|love]] the dark?
you leave it.
you leave the world to the [[end|dark.]]
of course you love the dark.
" w h a t a r e y o u ? "
you ask [[again|again]].
of course you hold the light.
maybe it's best if you keep it on. you press the switch to 'on' again, to be safe.
there is a soft hum, like whatever it was answered in some other language.
speaking will get you nowhere, it seems.
neither would anything else.
maybe you should [[leave it|accept]] it. leave it be.
maybe you should sleep. [[Start|start]] again.
there's nothing more you should do, really
maybe [[leave it|accept]] your fate. leave the world be.
maybe sleep. [[Start|start]] again.
