Into the Darkness

I walk down wet concrete stairs for what seems an eternity, trying to concentrate through all the frustration clouding my thoughts. Trying to keep my footing afraid that I would forever fall down these endless sharp edged stairs. As I continue my decent into seeming nothingness, the once bright light begins to fade. Fear grows as the light dulls to nothing and I panic as adrenalin is pumping through my veins. I begin to notice the sound of water droplets falling on the concrete far ahead and beneath me. In my heightened alertness I notice a faint light as though it were being reflected from around a corner. As I focus on the light it grows brighter. I mistakenly re-orient myself in my pursuit for my escape of the deep, dark, dank stairway, and fall head first towards what at first seemed like salvation. As I tumble I feel my ribs cave in after one too many landings on these ever sharp concrete stairs. I faint from the exhaustion of falling over and over.

My heart is pounding so hard that my own voice is barely audible over my heart beating my ears as I desperately cry for help. Suddenly I feel throbbing pains from my chest, pulsating uncontrollably. I open my eyes and try to blink away the darkness surrounding my vision. I lift my hands to help rub away the darness, I was with panic as I suddenly noticed I could not feel my arms. Adrenalin coursed through my body induced by my stricken state. Then sudden boost of energy made the darkness receded from my vision. As I blinked furiously trying to focus on my surroundings. I lay there unmoving, paralyzed for what seems like days, drifting aimlessly, trying to think back to what lured me to take this treacherous path. Then realization and memory hit me like a jolt of lightening theough my mind. I remembered seeing a beautiful woman, walking with a regal elegance down a path in front of me as I was walking home from work. She stopped, turned her head and smiled. I stopped; blown away by her astonishing angelic grace as she smiled she had the most stunning and entrancing eyes I have ever seen in my life. Then she turned down these stairs…
