Here in the dark
Is no light at all
No orientation
No shadows fall
Here in the dark
I reach out for you
Sensing fear
Have I lost you


I see no way out
I just hear your voice
It seems so dead
too cold for you, too cold for you to be alive
I hesitate to trust your voice
Sounding so unreal
It sounds as if somebody forces you


My hand streches out
Now I feel your hand
It is motionless
Oh my god, it is dead
The light is on now
The devil jeers at me
He drags your corpse, across barbed hooks
and takes away my soul with laughter

    General CommentClearly, the narrator of this story chased the promise of finding someone dear to him in the dark. Was it God he was looking for? Was it a lover? Was it just somebody who promised him the light he needed in life? Take your pick, as it's a moot point considering it was only a trap set by the devil.

    We are all like this person in the story. Living in the human condition, we are all a bit lost, in the darkness of ignorance and suffering, and we feel around for what, or who, can fulfill us or bring us closure in this life. Even when we have our wits about us, we want desperately to believe that those who promise us the fulfillment we seek, are real. This is why we fall for the deceptions of those who want to destroy us and what we need.
