The light encompasses him
It fills every nook and cranny
The light engulfs him
It occupies his mind, his heart
The light overtakes him
But then it began to evaporate

It slowly faded
Bit by bit
He couldn’t hold onto it
He couldn’t get a firm grip
It was slipping away
He felt it one second
Then it was gone

The dark
He feels the dark
It shuts him in
And holds him captive
He can see the light
He’s almost reached it

And it’s dissolved
Out of reach
Descending into the black hole
Swallowing him
He is once again consumed
By darkness

And the light has been defeated
For eternity
Never to come again
