I speak to the light and the darkness

I speak to them so that they may know my name

And self

And emptiness that surrounds my very soul

For light has shaped me, and forgotten the paths

And ways that have brought me to this place

The caves and tunnels that form my world

The illusions that bind them to myself

Alone I crouch

I stand

I shiver as water seeps into my flesh and bones

Weakening the will to fight

Shattering the paths of thought

Whispers in the nothingness

Flickers in the air

Greater ones may call me mad

Mad though I may be

Plenty of room in this cold dark place

For heroes

And cowards

And me
