Quotes left How many pages have I written? The words.. the endings... I've lost count. Still I remain trapped within this darkness... But this time, something is different. The answer lies just out of reach, enshrouded in black fog. I'm closing in now... I must be... The words move through me like blood through a vein. To escape, I must write... Though this new ending remains a mystery, I hold out hope that one day, the Fog will part... To illuminate.... My next Chapter. Quotes right
