“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
-Albert Einstein

I pitch forward into nothing; everything is dark and silent, and I swear I can feel the blackened room hold its breath. My eyes quickly adjust and small, dim orange lights slip between the window blinds, the moon and stars behind dimmed. I spied the open bedroom door, a portal to evil, and the shapeless masses beyond seemed to sneak closer, and the dark silence challenged reality. Air rushed in and out of my lungs uncontrollably. I tried to keep a level head, and snatching my glasses off the bedside table, I desperately pulled them on.
Terror melted into relief as the figures and monsters disappeared. Still wary of the night, I laid back in bed, my glasses still askew on my nose, and I let a more relaxing dream envelop me.
