destination unknown


Falling slowly into the unknown 

at first you do not know you are falling 
the darkness is gradual 
creeping ever upward 
tendrils of smoke snake around your ankles 
caressing your body as they take hold 
pulling you
at first you resist
you are afraid of the dark
but the harder you fight the faster you fall 
and into what you do not know
eventually you grow quiet and just 
listen to nothing 
it washes over you 
fills you 
becomes you 
you start to float instead of fall
you accept your ending 
content with not knowing the final destination
but then the darkness starts to fade 
and you realize that it is not and ending 
but a beginning
