Not Enough by Sean Cunningham
There is not enough light in this house. I keep buying lamps and torches and sconces and candles and lanterns and chandeliers and fireplaces, but nothing seems to work. I have covered the walls in mirrors to amplify the luminosity, but no, there is just not enough light in this house. I have removed all the furniture and doors, and knocked through walls, and installed floor-to-ceiling windows, and still the problem persists. I have taken off the roof and placed a bible in every room, but I am not at all satisfied – there is not enough light in this house.
