Grounded beneath grey waters,
Isolation my companion.
Glimmers of external light shattered
By darkness in my eyes
And despair in my heart.
Suffocating waves thundered overhead.
Restlessness and pain intensified
As sleep was lost.
Escape was inconceivable
With leaden limbs.
Peace enveloped my mind like oxygen.
Night became light.
Earth vibrated with strange colours.
Water glistened on the horizon.
A Presence closer than my being
Questioned my desire to retreat from the terror.
As storm clouds float away,
Sky becomes radiant
And friendship grows real.
I rest within the Creation, restored
By your tears.
