Light is fading, vanishing into thin air.

I'm trying to hold onto what I know isn't there.

Darkness surrounds me. I am losing sight.

My vision is cloudy though I try with my might

To escape the vast expanse of my reality.

I am brought face to face with my mortality.

I begin to fall through the space around me.

My head whirls and swirls with obscurity.

As I fall through the endless tunnel of black

I question what it will take to go back.

Back to the light which once entranced me.

Back to a life of positivity.

Soon the darkness begins to fade

Into a reality of a different shade. 

I see a new color, a color of blue. 

I find happiness in that which is new. 

The color fades into a brilliant white. 

The color of the much needed light.

    Everyone has these times when its difficult to smile. With me, it usually lasts less than a day. I will myself to change my point of view to other things that don't bring me down. I hope your down time is short and you feel much better.
