    Silent,
    Drifting,
    More silent than silence,
    Softer,
    Lapping stillness,
    Almost weightless,
    Sunbeams through closed eyelids,
    Peaceful, gentle rocking.
    Staring at the glistening, bluish white,
    All is calm.

    Incandescent sparkle,
    Occasional, hollow splash.
    Rocking, gentle float.

    Then, subtly, awareness,
    A heartbeat in the throat,
    Barely perceptible at first,
    A gentle nudge.
    Then a nag.
    Then closer to panic.
    Then panic.
    Panic.

    A rushing in the temples,
    Insistent,
    Throbbing,
    Aching lungs,
    Vision spots,
    Flailing.
    Desperation.

    Fight.
    Fight.
    FIGHT!

    Give up.

    Give in.

    There is no air.
    No relief.
    No thing.
    No nothing.

    Which prospect is most frightening?

    It’s a great band. Love their soundtrack from The Virgin Suicides.
