I Awake To Darkness (part 7)

I awake to the girl sleeping by my side The clouds are everywhere within the blue sky I wake the girl and her eyes open slow As we stand her and I have no place to go We start to walk and I begin to hear A message being whispered, the end you will fear I grip the girls hand and then we start to walk Then the spirits enter my mind and they begin to talk I try to ignore what they say and something catches my eye Leaving the ground to the air a sparrow begins to fly The sparrow can talk and it calls out my name This treacherous bird seems to be very tame It perches on the branch of a locust tree Asking us both if we want to be free We agree with the bird and nod our heads Everything goes black and we wonder if we're dead Our boundaries brighten the surrounding land We both are standing on ground covered in sand The spirits tell me that I'm still a fool I respond quickly this is my mind and here I rule Their whispering voices fade away I check on the girl and she seems to be okay We both lay down right next to each other We hold hands and look to the water Now is my chance to make things right I kiss her lips and then we fall asleep through the night...

... and the mystery continues, I see. Yes, definitely something difficult is about to happen or a challenge that will have to be overcome. Funny, I had thought the girl was a younger girl somehow. Oh and in the previous write, I thought it was interesting that your great grandfather was present. Keep your ties with your family. They want you to succeed, especially where they haven't in their own earth life. Thanks for sharing another part, waiting for #8. :) Best wishes, Caroline.
