Sometimes, you slam your eyes shut. As quickly as you can, but not quickly enough.
It's too late. You've already seen the truth. And that truth, it burns itself into you. It sets up residence in your soul.
And it eats away at everything. It devours everything. Nothing is safe.
Eyes squeezed shut, you frantically grope the darkness, looking for something, anything.
But there's nothing to find. There's nothing left. It's all gone.
Devoured by the truth.
