The Moment Between


Usually,
I think of death

and consider
it might be
another great adventure
like life.

Yet

drifting towards sleep,
I found myself in a moment
between awakeness and dreamland.
I had a vision

of leaving awakeness

for death

all was dark as a starless night
empty

void

no one.
Jolted

in the depths

of my heart

I stayed awake
until I fell asleep.

  1. I like that, " I stayed awake until I fell asleep"

    I fell into this darkness before too. I am still not certain that it was not a near death experience for me. When I came back and entered my body, It took days for me to actually recover my strength.
