Finally

Finally
he sat in silence
near the midnight hour

It was time

and all he knew was this
he had to face his greatest nemesis
tonight

Slowly but surely
he emptied his mind
of every thought's consideration

He floated there
within the void
waiting

while his consciousness expanded
searching space and time
for its approach

Till there!
a spark of light
within the darkness shone

In stealth and silence
he approached his nemesis
focusing on nothing else

and the light became a burning brightness
forcing tears from mortal eyes
Yet still he stared it down

Closer still it moved
encompassing his very being
while centered there within himself
he stood

And just as he became the light he battled
just then did he return to life
unscathed
but changed in every way

and life went on

It seems
his nemesis had won
again
