Through the void we stumble,
To the sparkle of light beyond
It used to surround us
Basking in it’s warmth, we felt it
Then all was dark.
Echoes of life, drifting away like a boat
Unanchored from its mooring, floating
Out into the black sea.
We don’t know where we are,
Or where WE are.
All there is, is the pinprick beam
Gleaming, like a torch shining
Through a keyhole.
We stumble forward, it moves further away
