So quickly the darkness descends

And so quickly the darkness descends.

Like those parachute games the children play, flapping them up and down by little handles on the corners, sometimes you’re completely wrapped up in the darkness of the parachute, sometimes it floats high above you, but it’s always there.

And when it descends it descends with a weight and velocity that completely surrounds you.

It engulfs you. It surrounds you so completely that it becomes all that there is.

All there is is darkness.
