Looking Back

Flashback!
The awful memory pops up and crashes over me like a wave.
I kick.
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.
I sink.
My arms are raised but I am lifeless.
Still frozen.
A strong grasp.
He
rescues me.
His firm grip pulls me to the shore.
I hold on while
He
untangles the debris.
He
breathes fresh life into me.
He
pours living water over me.
He
Cleanses me in the brightness.
Now
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.
Loved.
