Reflections of night shadows pass through the moonlight, into sunlight. Dimming stars fade into the distant horizon as I soar were eagles dare to fly. The rising morning sun gathers strength by the purples and blues that intertwined within its midst. I’m smitten—the glare of the sunlight dances on the windshield as though performing a high school play.
Within seconds, smoke fills the cockpit of my Spitfire. The airplane is swirling into a downward funnel, twisting and turning into an endless spiral heading.
A cold chill encases me. I have no thoughts of time, no feeling of pain, no memory of a yesterday, nor a calling of a tomorrow. An emptiness clings within me, leaving my hollow-core helpless, I am dream walking, free-falling, painting Picasso’s in my mind as I drift boundlessly.
Stillness wraps its way around the darkness, squeezing any light from my vision. Night shadows appear, I’m held hostage in the dark, my soul begs to find life, my lungs gasp at new-found air. Tranquillity takes hold of me. I look down and see myself. Am I in Heaven or Hell?
Pain awakens my immobilized body, and my teeth clench down, harder and harder to ease the intense pain. Darkness retains its reign as the colour red squirts its flushes in my eyes. Muffled sounds surround me that I do not understand or comprehend. Smells uncommon to me turn my empty stomach.
My legs lay numb, my arms tingle, feeling as though ants are eating me. Swollen fingertips move, not knowing what they are touching. Darkness fills my vacant thoughts—and time once again lets me escape.
A soft hand embraces my face, and its warmth stirs a pulse. My breathing finds a rhythm. A nudge on my shoulder sways inner emotions, evoking a memory.
My elusive past is revolving around me, trying to find an opening to enter my mind—an awaking of hidden fears or perhaps my mysterious former self. My mind struggles to focus, continually forcing me out like a circuit breaker that is being tripped and bringing me back to what is now. But what is now?
