Faceless, dark, blank, a voiceless yet ceaseless follower, it’s always at my back. I can hear its mute footsteps, even it’s screaming silence. I want to get rid of him, or maybe it’s a her, or whatever it is. It is never my friend, nor my foe but it makes my body shiver, it makes my soul quiver.
I turned off all the lights as it won’t exist without something bright. I find peace in my light-less four corners. Blanketed by the dark, there is no one but my afraid self. I tried to call out, no answer came.
I got no one but the black-being that made me insane.
