Alone in the Dark

A series I started on my blog, but the posts have become a little erratic to follow and find, so I wanted to put them together. Let me know what you think! Title is a work in progress :D

7. Plethora of Dreams

Water.

 

You love water.

 

What is this?

It laps over your arms, breathing, pulsing.

Alive as you are.

You look at your hands –

Wrinkled, wet.

 

Sinking, slowly.

No panic. Calm, like a funeral.

Nothing fast.

Nothing loud.

Slow, steady, calm.

 

Bubbles.

Bubbles rising from the depths,

From the cracks of the bedrock –

The soul of the Earth.

 

Otter.

Otter dancing, squeaking before your eyes, playing with a stone.

Soft fur, shiny eyes, big smile.

Otter dances,

Otter squeaks,

Otter plays.

You smile.

 

Otter stops.

The mood changes.

The water obscures.

Otter swims away,

Frantic.

 

You chase.

Otter disappears.

Fish.

Fish and crustaceans –

Swarming past you.

Panic.

Screams fill your mind.

Screams of a million tiny creatures.

Defenceless screams.

 

Bubbles erupt from your mouth.

You’re sinking.

Deeper,

Deeper.

Down,

Down.

Fish.

Octopi.

Squid.

Packs of shark.

All running in fear for their lives.

Rushing past you, stampeding.

The water running red.

 

You look down at the bedrock.

Breathing.

Gulping.

Swallowing.

Sucking everything into its maw.

Spitting red into the clear water.

 

The water you once loved.
