THE UNCERTAIN DEEP BY GINGER NINJA


The twinkle of light.
The sparkle of sunshine.
(I could stay here forever)
The rippling waters.
The encompassing warmth.
The distant chill.
The embracing calm.
(Is there a better place?)
The ominous silence.
(What happened?)

The sudden fear that surfaces.
The gloom of the darkness.
The depth of shadow.
The encompassing chill.
The distant warmth.
(No, please. I don't want to stay any longer)
The hot coal that suddenly burns within.
The swirling colours.
The obscuring visions of a fading memory.
(It was all such a long time ago. I barely remember. I'm letting it go)
Just one more breath...
Just one more...
Just one...
Just...
(Please)
