Swimming in an ocean of darkness.

Do you know what's it like to be left behind?

Crying, shivering in the night, without the comforting warmth

You so achingly long for,

How would you survive the loneliness?

A puzzling mystery to some,

Common experiences of mine

What do you feel when you're dying?

Would you float, fly,

Or just stare at the blank space?

Would your entire life really flash before your eyes?

No one could be sure,

Unless they've been there

I am falling…

Fading fast…

Into the vast shadows beyond…
