The Door and the Light

The door slowly opened with a creak and a shadow slipped out into the light. The night light on the wall flickered several times before falling off onto the floor. Even without electricity it stayed on, battery powered, wiggling around the floor like a worm.

The shadow enveloped it and wrapped itself around it, until the light ceased and forever faded into eternity. The shadow disappeared at that same moment. The door remained open with no lights nor shadows in it’s world. How sad the door would have been had it had feelings.
