The path of falling in and out of love.

The wind flows through my hair,

Soft and gentle as a summer breeze.

The dark abyss below me,

And the fear it brings is abandoned,

By the bright light that surrounds me now.

Its warmth gives me a sense of calmness and serenity.


The light flickers,

Losing its brilliance and warmth,

But just for a moment,

And when it returns,

It seems even grander.


I look down,

Suspecting the dark will reach me soon,

Though it never does.

The unknown becomes light,

And the light above me seems to travel up for eons.


But then the air turns gelid,

And the wind becomes harsh and chilling.

I lay there in question, falling down,



Then everything goes black.
