Darkness reached across my mind, enveloping,
Consuming all hope, love and dream.
There was nothing but the darkness within my existence.
Growing and spreading like a deadly virus,
Until it would consume even my breath.
Replacing life giving oxygen,
Choking, violent gasps only finding more darkness.
Then by chance, a glimmer appeared, when I heard your voice, felt your touch….
The darkness fades, pushed back by growing sparks.
Silhouettes dance as the darkness falls away.
Succumbing to, contorted by,
Fuzzy impressions of joy, happiness, life.
Until at last the darkness was no more.
Slipped off into the abyss, consumed by….. your light.
