The Other Side
"I feel like I'm drowning. I can hear the waves of reality crashing down from above the surface. I am lost in an ocean far deeper than any Pacific you've ever come across. As hard as I try, I can't seem to surface for air. I start to panic, and as my lungs replace air with water, I blank. Stillness... nothing. Floating in a void of peace. For once, I don't feel overwhelmed. I don't feel anything. What a world of wanderlust I was lost in. I liked it. Before I realized it, I awoke on the gravel & a paramedic was in front of me. 'We almost lost you,' she said relieved. She didn't know how bad i wanted to go back."
