First, for all those of you wondering if I fell off the Earth, the answer is “not quite”. Between multiple little things going on around the house, a low-level flu that keeps popping up at HIGHLY inconvenient times, and a little … shall we say, “airing out the cranium”, I haven’t been able to harass most of you anywhere near as such as I’d like to, nor post the drivel and semi-senile stories here on my little corner of the Net. But I promise I will be back, and soon – so enjoy not putting up with me while you can.
And as a reward for staying loyal to me (or forgetting to unfollow me), I present you with a little ditty that’s been bouncing around the corners of the old brainpan. Note: despite the dark tone of this, I am not going into depression or anything like that. So enjoy, and I’ll see y’all round the Intertubes.
Where am I? I do not know.
I cannot find a way I go.
All there is, is my old foe.
The darkness that consumes the soul.
I look around, but all I see,
Is just so utterly strange to me.
I see not start nor final goal,
Just the darkness that consumes the soul.
Each day I try, oh so hard,
To keep my humour up as guard.
But the shield falls, and comes the blow
From the darkness that consumes the soul.
I hope, one day, the light to see,
To set my soul and spirit free,
Once and for all, to finally be
Free of the dark following me.
But until then, this I know.
I must continue onward, so.
Until I am free of the toll
Of the darkness that consumes the soul.
