lovenotes_from_carolynI wasn't able to read the font due to the color of it against the background. Could you either adjust the coloring or add the piece to the caption please? I'm having trouble with blurred and obscured vision again too, so things are trickier right now. Sorry to trouble you.
lovenotes_from_carolynYes, I can see it clearly now thank you. Really a fantastic take on the memory challenge! The insights born of your challenges and difficulties will undoubtedly be relevant to many, as well as helpful to many. The closing lines are outstanding!!
The night, Pitch black darkness, Staring at the glow-in-the-dark stars on my ceiling, The silence is so loud, That I can actually hear it.
It is 3 am, The devil's hour, I can hear the clock ticking, The white noise of the fan, And the drops of water of my AC, Drip-drop, drip-drop, Tip-tap, tip-tap.
I'm sweating under the blanket, Trying to sleep, But the screaming in my mind, Won't let me, Paranoid about the dark figure I see.
I twist and turn, And I'm face to face with my mirror, I know it's the dark, And that's why I can't see my reflections, But I'm still terrified.
My emotions are overwhelming me, Why do I feel so naked, Under the covers at 3am, Getting nostalgic about the future, And scared of the past, And I feel something on my cheeks, Tears flowing from my eyes, My face is wet now, Everything is blurry, Maybe is because is don't have my specs, Or the tears brimming my eyes.
I'm so tired, Feel myself drifting off, Slowly and steadily, Don't wanna, But I can feel myself being taken hostage by sleep, Eyes drooping, Mouth open, Eyes watery, And all I see in black.
Feel myself falling, Deeper, Faster, Every second I'm thinking, Is another second I dying, I'm scared, Because I know there's no one to catch me, Don't know where I'm falling from, Or where I'm going to end up, My stomach is in knots, My heart is pounding so hard, I feel like its going to burst, Yet I continue falling.
I accept my fate, I have to fall, I close my eyes, Clench my fists, Waiting desperately to reach the ground, To feel the fatal impact, It was inevitable, I had to reach the ground, Right?
I could feel the darkness, As it tried to pull me down, I don't what terrified me more, Reaching the ground, Or falling forever.
Before I could decide, I had reached, I hit the ground, I woke up with a start, In a puddle of my sweat, For a second I though it was blood.
I am wide awake now, And I will be, Till morning comes, And the sun comforts my nightmares. -advi
