I recall being poised above the clouds, weightless beneath an ocean of stars, stretched atop sedimentary sunlight

 

Time had been frozen in a single, perfect moment

Balanced precariously between apathy and bliss

It was the suspension of life; the attainment of tranquility

 

Suddenly…oh so suddenly, there was a slam; and all at once, time began to move

No…not simply move…run

And then came gravity, accompanied by a twist, which sent me spiraling violently into a gaping, black chasm

 

Far…far…NEAR BELOW!!

 

The pain of severance…it burned

 

I opened my eyes and observed a new reality

There were voices…so many voices now

Screaming, crying, screeching—

 

Why…?

“You’re awake!” say they

“Oh…” I whisper

 

I’m awake, they say

Oh…I weep
