Emerging from darkness, reality is shown.
Is it real?
If I dim the lights, can I start over?
Like starting anew.
I close my eyes and toy with the idea.
There is solace there... in nothingness.
And then I remember, I can't dim the light. Not yet.
For the light within me is always here.
Until it gets so bright, it goes dark.
There is no starting over.
There is nothing to start over.
There is just everything.
He laughs, watching my burning.
So, I laugh with him.
Patience. Trust. Breathe.
Slowly we burn the light, till there is nothing left.
Until then, there is everything.
