Troubled mind put to ease

Drifting in and out of consciousness
I feel myself falling into the dark abyss.
Unable to move but still able to see and hear
In those moments I witness my deepest fear.
The thought of fading from this world alone and scared
The moment before death wondering if anyone ever cared.
Racing through scenes in my life
My brain seems to skewer the good memories with a knife.
I am left feeling hollow
In the depths of my own made up despair is where I seem to wallow.
Yet, an unexpected text releases the hold on me
Her words pour in to my heart and breaks a smile free.
