Poem #23 Nightmare

Nightmare

Suddenly I began to
Fall… fall….fall…..falling……
Spinning…..crazily tossed
Like a discarded autumn leaf
Before a gush of wind…..
I was falling deeper…..deeper…..into a
Dark, gloomy, desolate void –
Falling…..falling…..tumbling, twisting,
Plunging…..deeper…..deeper…..deeper…..
Helpless…..helpless…..
