A Moment of Lucidity

Wrestling with consciousness
fading in and out,
 the darkness threatens to sweep me away
Where am I?
How did I get here?
What happened?
No voice escapes my lips
dry, parched tongue mouths wordlessly
as dreams tangle with reality
swimmingly, a face appears
in a moment of lucidity
in the storm of incoherency
I remember your face
your love
your lifeline to me
a tenderness fills me with warmth,
as I sink back into the darkness
but now there is a light....

    I was very moved by this poem, Trudy. There are times when I have felt consumed by the "darkness," but thankfully "a light" always guides the way home. Love, Carolyn

    you are your own light...the God spark given with conception..your soul IS YOUR light...YOU are the Light in the Darkness and when your unready spirit tries to rise to the God light your remaining earthly concerns make you then the Darkness in the Light.

    Sounds like a scary experience. But it seems that we see the "light" in the darkness most of the time. Powerful work! Yours Matthew Anish
