“Void” by Lynn White

There are dark misty spaces topped by the blackest clouds, so that I can’t see into them. I have always been afraid of the monstrous beings which may lurk there waiting in the dark. But now the mist is lifting, moving away. The cloud is becoming thinner, allowing the light to penetrate. Now I am even more afraid, afraid of the light, afraid that it may reveal not monsters, but the bare boards of emptiness.
