Fighting to Fight…

In between I remain, still too far down to see any shadow from above and down below the darkness seems bottomless…

The supply of oxygen stored in my lungs diminishing quickly, down to the last ounce. These tiny bubbles escaping from my now purple lips are slowing in speed and further apart as my lungs begin to constrict…

Panic is in full swing, every inch of my body is in survival mode. As I try to wiggle my way out of this suspension, I feel my left arm feeling slightly free. A sense of hope ignites and I wiggle my body mermaid style until limb by limb I wiggle loose…

As I begin to swim upward, my eyes catch the glimpse of a shadow above. It seems to be someone holding one of there hands out to me, the sound waves rippling toward me ring of a muffled, “keep going! Grab my hand!”…

This sound wave is unfamiliar to my ears, yet I keep swimming because all I want is to get out of this dream…

Further and further, the luminosity of the moon becoming brighter and more brilliant. The surface seems just a few more tail flips away, but then I stop. Treading just below this glassy surface I look up and a thought splices through my mind. For a moment I contemplate whether to continue upward to where the sweet relief of fresh oxygen awaits or allow myself to drift back down into the darkness…

As I contemplate, I also begin to ponder as to who the strange savior is above…

*alarm goes off…damn*

This day is going to be filled with a lot of coffee and pondering in the background about the stranger in my dream.

“Found a wreck on the ocean floor
Like a tidal wave, you washed it all away…” -Blink 182
