All is Lost.

All is Lost

Sometimes I lay in bed at night and think of all the tragedies that have befallen me. I fall into a dark place, one where happiness and hope is replaced by depression and self-hatred. I fall prey to the scaly, life-sucking clutches of sadness. I lie in bed and wish that the sun would never come up. That the sun would never shine upon my face again. That the malevolent creatures of the night would roam free. I feel this because I feel I need to be punished. I feel that I need to repent for my sins. I feel this way because I embrace the fate that surely awaits me at the end of this sad ironic existence, Hell. I feel it pulling me down, farther and farther. The hands of those damned as I, reaching, clawing at my feet. I feel all the pain I have caused, the souls of the innocent whispering in my ear. My head fills with a dark cloud of emotion. Thousands of voices inside my head, blurring the lines between the imaginary and the real, reality becomes a whisper in the wind. The air cools, sending a deep chill up my spine, I feel myself falling. Falling downward into the depths of the empty, lifeless, abyss; the darkness envelopes me, like a blanket of sorrow it drowns out my cries for help. I scream louder, my voice becoming fainter and fainter as the darkness encroaches. The voices in my head grow louder; they are shouting now, my ears ring, my vision blurs. I feel yet another chill run up my spine, like the icy fingers of death running down my back. The darkness closes in, all is lost.
