Abyssal Whispers: Over the Precipice




In the depths of my mind, the darkness looms, a pervasive presence that engulfs my thoughts and emotions. It whispers sinister words, its voice laced with malice and despair.


"Do you doubt yourself, my friend?" the darkness hisses, its tendrils of influence tightening around my consciousness.


"No," I muster, determined to resist its hold. "I will accomplish what needs to be done."


Mocking laughter echoes through the shadows. "You're a fool. Shouldn't you strive for excellence? Ascend the treacherous mountain, reach the pinnacle of success."

But this mountain, I realize, is not meant for me to climb. There are other paths, other aspirations that beckon in my life's journey.


"Then perhaps surrender is your fate," the darkness sneers, relishing in my perceived weakness. "Glory days are a distant memory, and victory slips away like sand through your fingers. You are naught but a pitiful loser."


In the face of its taunting, I refuse to succumb. Determination wells within, driving me to silence the darkness' cacophony. There is no room for negotiation with this malevolent force. It demands my unwavering pride or my desolate self-pity, the pursuit of unattainable perfection or rebellious defiance, the elusive scent of divine approval or a lifetime suffocated by bitterness. The choice lies before me, and the darkness must tread carefully, for its existence hangs in the balance.


But the darkness, undeterred, persists in its seduction. "Evict me? Please. Can't you see? I offer liberation from the burdens of acceptance, values, and hard work. I can soothe your shattered self-esteem. Should I reveal the future, would you not eagerly drink from the chalice of dreams?"


Yet I have witnessed the peril that lies in succumbing to such illusions. The allure of empty promises and fantastical escapism leads only to an abyss of lost identity and shattered dreams. The darkness's enticements are not the path I wish to tread.


"Begone, darkness!" I declare with unwavering resolve. "Leave me be!"


"What a fascinating sight," the darkness murmurs, savoring its triumph. "I feed on your hesitations, humanity. Your uncertainty is my sustenance, and the clouds of unease I conjure cast a pall over your weary mind. How sweet it is to revel in the depths of your questions, worries, fears, and the perceived inadequacies that plague your endeavors."


Yet within this tempestuous struggle, a whisper emerges—a plea for surrender to the darkness, a yearning for release and dissolution. It entices with the allure of an end, a descent into nothingness.
