"How long can any man fight the darkness, before he finds it in himself?"
The phrase from a trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man 3 movie. It speaks volumes of how I'm feeling right now. I'm afraid. Fear. Darkness. The void. I'm falling into an abyss. The unknown is encroaching upon my consciousness with little steps. Approaching slowly. Doubt. Insecurity. Despair.
Fear is like fire. It's alive. It thrives on the same things you require to survive. A tool, when controller. A weapon. Dangerous. Unpredictable. Explosive. Emotion fuels it, and it fuels emotion. A tinderbox of despair.
