"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before." - Edgar Allan Poe

I see the shadows moving.
Every night I tell them to go away
To leave me alone
It wasn’t time yet.

Not tonight.
Tonight I tell them it’s time,

Take me away.

Take me away from
Every thought that passed through my mind
Every emotion that flowed through my body.
I don’t want it anymore.

They grab me and take me high above
To the stars
Through the clouds.
Past the nebulas
Into a place above the universe
Above matter…

They leave me on God’s doorstep.
As the light shines through the gates
The shadows disappear.
And I’m alone
Faced with the choice
To move forward
Or fall back into reality.

I stand up and walk into the light
I walk away from everything human
Everything that I once knew
To embrace where I was always supposed to be
I’m finally free…
