The awful memory pops up and crashes over me like a wave.
The smell knocks me under and water pours in.
I can’t breathe.
Evil wraps around my ankles like seaweed and pulls me to the bottom into the dark abyss.
My arms are raised but I am lifeless.
A strong grasp.
His firm grip pulls me to the shore.
I hold on while
untangles the debris.
breathes fresh life into me.
pours living water over me.
Cleanses me in the brightness.
I watch the waves, unafraid.
Taking slow, deep breaths
Going deep, never alone
I resurface, clean.
In the Sonshine
Sand dancing between my toes
Soaking it all in.
all the way from the sky to the sea.
He reached down into my darkness to rescue me!
He took me out of my calamity and chaos
and drew me to himself,
taking me from the depths of my despair!
