Dark
The flashlight,
A narrow beam of wobbling light.
Illuminating only a little bit of the whole.
Showing a piece of the big picture.
When it flicks off,
We go back to darkness,
It doesn't make a difference if our eyes are closed.
Darker than night.
When that battery dies,
The light is gone.
And we are alone,
In the dark.
