My Song with Lyrics:
The silence kills me as I waste away. My limbs feel like concrete embedded to the hot sheets I lay upon. I’ve been in this dark long enough that the brief hitches that overcame me in the beginning, cease to exist. I’ve grown used to the darkness. Now I await. Petrified of anything that might disturb my trusted darkness.
In the dark, I can’t make out my journal that’s not two feet beside me. Written there are the words I hadn’t found the courage to scream aloud until tonight.
In the dark, I am held accountable for everything I once said, did, and thought. In the silence I feel the weight of that guilt. I don’t like it.
My mouth is too dry to make the idle noises from before. Now, the silence…threatens…to kill.
I grip the sheet as my body bows trying to revive my lungs that seem to stop working. I bang my fist on the bed trying to cope with the lack of oxygen.
Suddenly a warm touch covers my chest, right by my heart. Allowing some shallow gasp of air. And with the renewed breath I force my vocals to ring, “Raise me up to live again.”
The warmth crashes down upon me, filling my body. I feel Him.
“Raise me up to live again, like you did.” I whisper before I am conscious no more.
