Pitch black
and blinding
Darkness devours
Slowly suffocating
Suppressing breath
Starving lungs
Until that
gasping for air
oxygen finally
reaches the brain
the spirit awake
to witness
day-breaking sun
and feel
its healing powers
Proving that
darkest moments
are always before
the dawn
The new day brings
hope for change

    Great imagery and symbolism. It reminded me of waking up, even before I got to that part.. .

      We have all had those dreams where we feel like we are drowning and wake up breathless and gasping for air. Thanks Jay 😊

        Me too. Does that mean we need CPAP machines? =P
