The darkness surrounds me

Itching closer and closer

until it consumes me

I struggle, yet drown

in its overwhelming power


Unconscious, I float to the top

Drifting upward

through the gradient of greys

toward the light


I awake

struggling to open my eyes


Not all is lost

above the sea

Here I can breathe

I gasp

lungs filling with air


I am alive.

I am here.


Take it all in

before the spiral begins again.
