Friday Fictioneers: Drive the Darkness Away

Not quite as lighthearted as past contributions. It should be noted that I have no addiction problems (unless you count coffee), but that’s the first thing that comes to mind when I see those bottles.

Thanks, as always, to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting Friday Fictioneers.

Drive the Darkness Away
     Tap, tap.
     A little powder here, a little liquid there brings light to a dark world. Just a little spark to burn away some of the smothering void. But just a little.
     For now.
     Tap, tap, tap.
     A little more won’t hurt. Will it? The spark isn’t as strong without the extra. The darkness is twice as heavy, and it just won’t go away.
     Tap, tap, tap, tap.
     The spark is a bright light now. It drives the darkness away and the world is brilliant again.
     Until it’s too bright.
     The darkness is back, but now it’s here to stay.
