I close my eyes

And lay down my head


Lost, seeing only darkness
Wondering, screaming with a silent voice

I see a sliver of light in the distance


I walk, I run for hours
Not reaching the destination of light

Finally I reach for it


I see you in the doorway
Surrounded by light, me by darkness

You hold out your hand


With love and anticipation
I reach for it, I can’t, the darkness

Won’t let us hold each other


Light tries to fight, but it is just to strong
You look me in the eyes, your eyes are sad

And disappointed


You slowly drift away
I feel the words ‘don’t go’ on my lips

I fall, the butterflies in my stomach


Are dead, I’m on my own, in
A pit of darkness forever

I open my eyes, rapidly breathing


Heart pounding, your holding me
Saying ‘don’t worry’

‘Everything is ok’


A sign of relief washes over me
And I’m just glad you’re here.
