It Was Into Darkness That I Fell

 

It was into darkness that I fell.

Plunging into an indigo abyss.

Head first.

My limbs flailing at their own will.

Without any warning, I was lost in the shadows.

 

Trapped at the bottom of a pit,

my hands placed forward

failed to reach the edge

 

Paralyzed

I exhausted myself.

Tragically defective.

 

The darkness dissipating slowly like fog on top of a hill

Lightness emerged.

Slowly, out of a corner first.

It grew stronger and brighter

 

Gradually, a vision of myself emerged

Contrasted against the darkness that had encased me.

I began to notice my internal landscape.

 

I stepped out onto a field and followed the dawn

East.
