I can feel him there, the dark one. The man he was—the man I am to become. I run into the blazing light. Trying to be a star. But I’m in supernova and burst asunder leaving a black hole in the universe. Wholly consumed by the bitter taste of what he was.
I turn away; I feel the doppelganger mirror my move. A silhouette of my darkened future, destined. Each cell carries his message to my being. I walk to life and find myself mired in the undead realm of his rumor.
Shining, I stand and contemplate my dreams. Each one obsessed with grasping the shimmer of my emancipated soul. Free from the sins of my father.
