The winds picked up and heavy clouds moved in.
I reached into their empty darkness with cold hands and let them carry me away.
Lightening ripped through me and tore me apart,
Angry rain all but washed me away,
I turned my head to look down for help, but there was nobody there.
Silence deafened me.
I must’ve drifted for hours, maybe even days, or weeks.
It’s easy to sleep when it’s hard to stay awake.
In the distance, through jagged slices of grey, a shard of white light stole into my sight.
Soon the clouds would fade away.
And I would fall back to earth again.
