Dark Night of The Soul

light

 

In the infinite expanse of unknown darkness,
there is indeed a light, but it is unfortunately only a residual
candle-end; a little flame fluttering on a charred, lifeless wick which
floats sputtering in a vanishing drop of impure wax. And this you must
solicitously carry about in the darkness, searching for the fatty remains
of other spent candles that might feed your dying flame. Yes, there is a
light, but it is barely discernible even though it be in your grasp. Oh,
it is so dim and precarious, it hardly sheds enough light for the duties
you must ceaselessly perform, in order to keep lighted the light.
