I step out into the void
Searching and calling for other souls
In isolation I wait
But the only voice I hear
Is my own
In echoes… choes… choes…
I call out asking if anybody’s there
But my own echo responds
Only deepening my despair
Are the others, and why am I the only one
So blinded by the darkness
I aimlessly reach around
I come upon and feel bodies
But they themselves
Make no sound
Why am I awoke and the others remain
Now the ground I stand upon is falling from my feet
And the void that I’ve entered is now vast
Why cant these bodies feel my presence
Why won’t my calling wake them their sleep?
Why must I walk this void alone
Why can’t I escape its grips, find light, and
Set myself free?
Why must I continuously reach out
But not find
Spirits that are like mine?
Those who are woke in this void
But in its darkness, made blind
I can’t be the only one searching for the light
Searching for some sign or
The mere presence of life
Does this void even exist
And in my quest to find others awake
What is this?
A sign of life? A sign that I
May not be so desolate all along?
For somewhere in the void
Somewhere in this darkness
But where did it come from
And why now, is it gone?
Could it be that my hope has my
Mind-sight go wrong?
I close my eyes
And go blinder than blind
I sit quietly in this emptiness
And find it quite fine
A state of peace
A moment for my brain not to think
And when I open my eyes
To my surprise
That glimmer of light is now bursting
Emitting from my body…
That light all along
That I searched for
Was inside of me
In this void
