I Awake To Darkness (part 2)

I open my eyes and I am lying against the door All around me there is blood on the floor Rising to my feet I begin to walk around There is nothing but blood in every room I have found I hear the spirits again in my mind and soul The floor opens and there is a darkened hole My soul is telling me not to go in But the spirits whisper to me, "your adventure begins" I listen to the spirits and jump down below There is only shadow and I don't know where to go I open a flare which lights the way The shadow begins to turn away I hear a faint cry not knowing if it's real But its sorrow and pain is what I can feel The spirits tell me the cry I cannot follow They tell me to make my heart hollow I continue to obey and follow my quest But I still don't know if that was a test There is a wall in my path that I break through And the sky outside is the deepest and darkest blue I start to walk and I trip and fall Crashing down a hill I lose it all I come to a stop and lay on my back Closing my eyes falling asleep and everything goes black...

It continues to be interesting and very well written. The only comment I feel compelled to make is that, you are not following your own quest, but what the spirits, because you are obeying them. I will continue to read. Thanks for sharing. Caroline.
