My darkness calls out to me once more.
Nonthreatening, it reaches out to me.
Come back to me.
Engulfing all I know with the darkest shadows of my soul.
I raise my eyes from the map I’ve been following and look around.
This is it.
This is not the way I am supposed to go.
It’s set ablaze.
Turned into ashes.
The road is left behind.
I fade to black.
I take its hand.
We are one again.
