The chase ends when you stop running from yourself, the grunting monster behind you in relentless pursuit quietens when you cease to run, why because the monster is you. Your mind, your thoughts, actions giving birth to tragedy. The self is more powerful than any outside influence. The dark is free there is nothing in there to drag you into the pit. It is what is in our head that claws out, manifests and reigns terror. Beware of you.
