So much darkness…

It's all so boring, and nothing to look at besides the endless paint of black splattered at every angle that my eyes wander to. I keep falling and falling, losing sense of all my being. I don't even remember how I ended up here, and piece by piece my memory is starting to crumble.

"Who am I?" I whispered into the bleak abyss.

I'm not even sure how much time passed. Time may have no meaning here, I'm not even sure I exist in any form. Nothing is everything here, and vice versa.

Only tiny small fragments of my memory exist…

Like the time I almost got hit by a truck for not looking…

Or the time I sat alone in my room with water cascading down my face…

Even the time I was called a cookie monster….

But I can't remember why to any of those or whom it pertains to in those moments. My mind is just an empty canvas with a splotch of color here and there. It's being washed away the deeper I fall here…

Deeper

Deeper

Deeper

Deeper

Deeper

Those words keep repeating in me…

My body keeps feeling heavier the more I fall, the more I'm lost forever…

Heart slowly beats with the pulse of the darkness taking over all of me.

Chill spreads through my body like a pool being filled with water.

Breathe starts to go heavily, with my eye lids inching closer to my cheeks.

My memory washes away more, not even remembering the things I just said. I'm turning into nothing, becoming one with this blackness…

Suddenly I see a speck of white below me…something beaming with warmth. My eye lids start to move away from my cheek, and make my eyes wider. I feel lighter, and the warmth is hugging at my fingertips. I fall closer to the speck, embracing the warmth making me feel lighter and more aware. My memory starts to place itself back together, and everything I forgot seconds ago, comes back to me one after another. New things come back to my mind, and the puzzle of me is getting closer to completion…

Warmer

Warmer

Warmer

Warmer

Warmer

I remember now, this is the light that is found in the deepest darkness. It's the warmth of hope that is putting me back together.

"I know who I am now." I said with more volume and life in my voice as the light becomes bigger and bigger.

"I am…."

The light engulfs me.
