A new awakening.
The darkness….
it can no longer envelope me.

I have shed the unwanted skin.
I peak through the haze....
the anger is gone....
the blackness is gone.

It is only warmth I feel.
It closes around me and suspends me.....
my feet are at least six inches off the ground.....
my head is light.

I have heard his voice.
It is smooth and silky...
like the smoothest chocolate....
it is addictive.

I have to hear it constantly.
I have to have my drink......
I am thirsty......
He feeds me......
He says he Loves Me.

Is this too fast?
What am I doing?
I am scared.
Why am I questioning this?
Over analyzing…
Let it flow...
LET IT GO.

Do I wish to go back into the darkness?
I scream...
I shake....
I feel the burning all over my being.
He has pulled me out of the darkness....
but he doesn't know it.

Unwrapped.....
unwrapped from the Darkness.

I have found my love.....
He has found me....

We are here.
For as long as we have breath
.
