The darkness stretches over me like a tide rolling in over a deserted beach.

It seeps into every part of me like a cold, black ooze.  Enveloping.  Smothering.

It’s heavy and suffocating.  It moves slowly, swallowing more of me with each passing moment.

I feel helpless as it overpowers me.  Exhausted, I surrender to the darkness.

The moment I stop fighting I feel the light touch me.

It washes across me like a warm, gentle rain.

It burns through the darkness.

It is a relief.  A sanctuary.

I take my first breath again.  Breathing in the freedom.

I breath deep, knowing in a moment

The darkness will cover me again.
