The crunching underfoot unnerved his soul;
He needed something to distract his mind.
The illuminated cave bled turmoil;
Death and disease was all he’d ever find.
The stony stillness caused his breath to stop;
He struggled to shatter the oppression.
Inside the world shone in constant darkness;
But outside he felt only aggression.
The presence of blindness consumed his fears;
He heard terror in every unseen crack.
Deep within the shadows lurked his demise;
Fear-hungry monsters prepared to attack.
