Is there any light at the end of the tunnel?
If there is, I can't see it.
Pitch black and dank with a musty stale stench in the moist air..
Reminiscent of an abandoned Alaskan mine shaft visited long ago.
There must be a way out.
I can feel a faint cold breeze quietly whistling past my face.
But I can't see a way out.
It's scary down here.
If only I had somebody to help me.
Or a torch? A glimmer of light even?
Nobody can hear me down here.
A slimy drop of cave water drips onto the back of my neck and trickles down my back which sends a ghostly chill down my spine.
Panic-stricken I ascend onwards through the claustrophobic rat run.
But to no avail.
I feel like I'm lost in an evil Labyrinth.
Blind and disorientated I kneel and pray for a guiding light or a helping hand.
Nobody comes. Nothing changes.
Still no light and can't feel the breeze anymore.
This impregnable darkness that has been bestowed upon me is a demons lair. I shouldn't be here!
I will have to dig deep within the nucleus of my soul to find the courage to beat this god forsaken place.
I now know what I must do, but I know the journey will be endless with many treacherous obstacles ahead.
I live in hope that I can find the light I seek and journey out of this bottomless pit of a tunnel.
