Light. Turn on the light. The light at the end of the tunnel. A tunnel so deep. Buried where no light exists. Buried by burdens. Burdens that are heavy. Lighten my load. Eyes straining to see the light. Wanting light. Craving the dawn. Darkest before the dawn. Have I seen the darkest. Tunnelling. Burrowing deeper to avoid another fall. A fall that followed a bright summer. Easy living summer. Endless day leads to endless night. The balance of life. Balance beam. Precariously perched searching for a beam of light. Lighten my load. Throw off the shackles. Bound to the past. Past due. Best before. Dilated pupils. Pupils of life. Pupils adjusting to light. Turning back to the tunnels. Buried deep. Protection found in darkness. Burrow down deeper.Turn off the light. Hibernate.
