What is happening to me? Why are the shadows closing in? What do I see lurking in the corner?
I am not ready to leave this world yet.
I close my eyes tightly shut and open them again, thats better.
The shadows are still there, but smaller, less intimidating. I stand up to put a light on.
I ache, my spine creaks.
Not so nimble as I used to be, I move more slowly.
Only yesterday I was 21 and in love.
The world was an exciting place full of adventures and I embraced it.
Now I see shadows gathering in the corners, shadows waiting to embrace me, but not yet.
I am not ready to die yet.
