I fell into the abyss.

It happened suddenly, Without warning or fanfare.

Before I knew it, I was enveloped and swaddled In a vast and empty stillness.

The silence held secrets. Words, shrouded in secrecy, Hoarsely whispered their meanings in my ear.

At first, I struggled and fought, Kicked with all my might, Convinced of my conviction.

I raged at the inherent attributes of absence, Terrified by its casual desolation.

But, Gradually I saw the true nature of the void. It was infinitely compassionate and gentle. It offered me solace and asked nothing in return.

I gave myself up. I let go. I drifted away into placid oblivion.

It was so easy. It made perfect sense.

Weightless and tranquil, I ceased to exist.
