just one more day
It's the same but different but similar but we're doing the same but not always exactly but mostly it's never-ending. When you run out of places to make the days you just mark the marks and keep marking till you've cut a hole through to nothing. It's nothing. There's nothing there and you're going to look at it and rebuild your wall and start again.
It's not the monsters that are waiting to get you. It's nothing that will get you. Not that something isn't going to get you but that thing will probably be something simple, small, senseless. It'll be the thing you can't see or touch and it's waiting for you while you claw your way through the days. It's sitting there.
If you can see the monster you can stop the monster or you can at least understand why it's ripping you to pieces but the small beast of ethereal nothing will not tell you why. You won't see the murderous hunger in its eyes. You shall just feel it take you.
If it finds you it will. So make it harder to find you.
