The Darkness.

I'm lost. Lost in endless darkness, its tendrils wrapping around me, sapping away the light that once fuelled me, leaving no sign of it. My ability to smile is gone, replaced by a fleeting ghost of a smile that never reaches my eyes. Though I keep walking, step by step, searching for even a glimmer of light to guide me out, something tells me that I'll never find it. Maybe it's the darkness talking, but it's all I feel these days. Lost, hopeless, nothing. Though I am surrounded by darkness, I will keep on walking, keep on pushing through, pulling the tendrils of it away from me with all that I am and all that I have. The darkness will not consume me, for there is light in the distance.
