Gathering Shadows

shadows

 

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.
