I was travelling, the past encumbering me, the future immaculately planned...
and little by little, each single strand of this beautiful tapestry I had woven began to unravel...
I kept trying to piece it back together, anxiously.
I kept falling further and further behind...Now, a thick pile of thread is gathered at my feet. I lower my head in shame, for I have failed and all is silent.
My mind fills with black clouds and grey mist. There is no sound, no smell, no taste, no sight, no feeling or emotion...just blackness...
I need to exit this depression immediately for I begin to feel the coldness wrap it's icy fingers around me. I cannot breathe.

Amongst the anguish and the adrenaline, I envision a distant light... His face is warm and handsome...His smile is home to me.
His eyes are my most wonderful dreams.
I beg for him to help me but he cannot hear me, so struggle to follow him.
And suddenly, here before me is a wonderful, comforting, bright light.
I see his face before mine and it is shocking and exciting!
He closes his eyes and touches his lips to mine, and I feel this intensity surging throughout my body...
It feels so beautiful and warm, and right.
He brings his strong masculine hand to the soft skin of my face, and once again, I feel this intensity... All at once, I realize I am right where I belong (in his arms),
and I know that I have never failed...
I have only been lost in my own uncertainty and emptiness, only to be rescued
by the other half of myself.

(Don't you see? You are my Light in my own form of Darkness.)

I see it beautifully, magnificently. I'm speechless. How absurd for me to be.

Thanks to both of you! I actually wrote this a couple of years ago. It's published in an anthology called "Parchment, Quill, and Verse."
