Absense of Light - Drabble Dienstag

Here is my drabble (100 word story) for this week. I'm kind of thinking this one is a cheat. It's not really a story, just a character sketch. No ending, just a description. What do you think?

My greatest fear seems to be the only essential thing in my existence. If I am to exist at all the light must play a part. Though I shy from it, and hide behind everything I can find, it is a necessity. Otherwise the contrast would not be there. My ability to attach to people and cling to inanimate objects has nothing to do with the one thing that allows me to thrive. In absence of light I disappear into darkness like the shadow that I am. I don’t want to touch the light, but I cannot survive without it.

No, you can not survive without "the light" Yahshua is the light, He is from where our strength comes.
Once again, I love your drabble!!!!

Hello, I'm a doofus. Here I am asking about your drabbles, and you've done two already!

And I love them!! Love the concept behind this one, especially. It reminds me of a riddle. Shadows do have such a curious relationship with light, though, don't they?

This is intriguing! Want to hear more about this shadow creature. How about fleshing it out with more senses? - get a hint of touch here but would like more!
