Keeper of the Darkness
“It ain’t the dying that’s the hard part, it’s what comes after....”
Dying isn’t so bad. In fact, you feel more alive at the moment of death than you did when you took your first breath. When do you feel so alive as that moment that you truly realize your life is slipping away? When your life is at an end and you know it, don’t you become profoundly aware at that moment with every fiber of your being of what its like to be truly alive with the blood rushing through your veins and your heart pounding in your chest? Its a terrifyingly exhilarating moment. One in which you’ll never forget-at least not in my world.
I guess I’ll begin with where I am at right now. Darkness-cold, hard, unforgiving, sightless, pitch-black darkness. Except for the moments when I’m mercilessly plunged into the living world. Except for the times that he comes--The Keeper.
You see, I’m in Dead World. It is a place with it’s own bone chilling cold. It is blacker than anything you’ll see in life. In the living world, we are so far removed from reality. We go about our daily lives living in blissful ignorance thinking we know what its all about--that we have a sense of why we’re here and what is important. We think we’ve got it all in the bag. But, we seldom think of what comes after. Where we go and what we do when its all over. Many of us think we have the answers, but do we really know? Do we? I thought I did...until I met the Keeper.
